Support

Village Agents

The Village Agents scheme is in response to the fact that many people living in rural communities have difficulty in accessing key service and support agencies that help maintain your well being and quality of life.

‘The Community Council For Somerset is a charity which provides confidential advice and support using community based solutions. We run a series of projects one of which is the Village Agent scheme. Village Agents have a wealth of information and have strong community links. They can advise on local support available such as groups, transport, services, finances, employment, volunteering and more.
