Community Council for Somerset Agents are also all around you to help you to get the most out of your life. Village Agents work with anyone who asks for support and can be found in your parish magazine and website and on our website www.somersetagents.org
Carers Agents will support you if you are over 18 and are looking after someone in an unpaid capacity whether that’s your child if you are their Carer, partner, relative or friend – lots of advice and support options can be found at www.somersetcarers.org or by calling our freephone helpline 0800 3168 600.
Community Agents will support you with a referral from Adult Social Care (call Somerset Direct on 0300 123 2224) or may work direct from your local doctor’s surgery. And finally, our transport agent is working on transport solutions for the whole county.

Village Agents offer a signposting and referral service with a difference, helping to bridge the gap between isolated, vulnerable and lonely individuals and the statutory and voluntary organisations which may offer solutions to their needs.
