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!

Re-home a Phone!
THANK YOU to all those people who have donated to the Re-home a Phone appeal – so far we have had 24 working handsets donated as well as an ipad & laptop!
Check your ‘bits and bobs’ drawer where old devices lurk waiting to be loved again!
By donating an unused phone to us, YOU can help reduce loneliness and isolation for people in Somerset, as well as help in their everyday lives doing online shopping.
We will :
✔️refurbish the phone
✔️remove any personal data
✔️ provide the new owner with a SIM card
✔️support them to use the phone with video tutorials and install apps that will help them to keep in touch with their loved ones.
To donate, please contact our Village Agent Ellie Bishop on:

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
