Gloucestershire Village & Community Agents provide support and information to the over 50s in Gloucestershire.  The aims of the scheme are:

  • to give older people easier access to information that will enable them to make informed choices about their present and future needs.
  • to help keep older people independent and in their own homes for longer.
  • to provide links for older people to engage with groups and support networks within their communities.
  • to bridge the gap between the local community and voluntary and statutory organisations.

If you live in or close to one of the areas above, and are committed to helping older people in Gloucestershire, then please contact Gloucestershire Rural Community Council on 01452 528491 for more information. Click on the link for an application form and supporting documentation.
