The CCS ‘Army’ of Agents

CCS Village and Community Agents provide confidential, practical community-based solutions for people, wherever they are in Somerset, they are problem-solving, solution-finding super heroes! CCS Agents support people to:

  • Be healthy and well
  • Be able to manage their affairs
  • Stay independent and safe
  • Be part of a strong and thriving community

In March 2022 CCS commissioned the evaluation of the Somerset Village and Community & Agent service. It was delivered by Smart Communities Ltd.

The aim is to identify current and potential unmet needs of specific cohorts within Somerset communities, whilst simultaneously generating learning opportunities about the service and areas for future improvements. Now it is available to download, see the full report here.
