Village and Community Agents

CCS Village & Community Agents provide confidential, practical community-based solutions for you, wherever you are in Somerset.

Your local CCS Village Agent can be contacted directly, or by referral through your Doctors surgery.

CCS Community Agents can only be contacted by a referral from your doctors or Adult Social Care Services.

They help when others don’t, won’t or can’t!

Keeping Warm in Winter

Don’t suffer in a cold home in silence

Every year we distribute grants to vulnerable older people through the surviving winter scheme – the money comes from older people who can afford not to use their winter fuel allowance, so the money gets recycled to help people in need.

It is managed by the Somerset Community Foundation – more information can be found here. Our Agents are one of the ways people get to know about the money.
