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
