Helping older people in Gloucestershire 

have a better quality of life

Village and Community Agents work with the over 50s in Gloucestershire, providing easy access to a wide range of information that will enable them to make informed choices about their present and future needs.  The aim is to help older people feel more independent, secure, and cared for, and to have a better quality of life.

"Just to know that the Agent is there gives those of us who live alone the confidence in our daily lives..."

Village and Community Agents are employed and managed by GRCC, and funded by Gloucestershire County Council and the specialist agents by Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group

  • Gloucestershire Village and Community Agents prove their worth!

    Gloucestershire Village and Community Agents have a reputation of making a difference to the lives of their clients. Now a new report demonstrates that the scheme also saves money. A cost/benefit analysis of the scheme calculates that the Agents’ work saved Health and Social Care services in Gloucestershire £1.29m between 2012 and 2014. At the same time, the Agents’ clients saw a personal financial benefit of over £800,000.

  • Building Links with Gloucestershire Police

    Following on from Operation Themis last autumn, where Gloucestershire Constabulary worked closely with those in the badger cull zones, officers have continued to work alongside Village and Community Agents to understand the needs of those living and working in these rural areas.
