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

Proud to be part of the Somerset Food Resilience Task Force!
Our Agents play a huge role in distributing food boxes and essential supplies to people in need and to community groups to redistribute all over Somerset to help #EndHunger in Somerset.Click here to find out how to request a food box
Don’t suffer in a cold home
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.Donate to the Surviving Winter Scheme
