Community Agents aims to make it easier for the elderly to live
independently and safely in their own homes.
Through a network of specially trained agents and volunteers, the Community Agents Essex service will work with older people and their carers to identify their care needs, access community-based help and build their confidence enabling them to carry on managing their own lives.
The service is funded by Essex County Council and delivered through a partnership comprised of the Rural Community Council of Essex, who will lead the project, the British Red Cross, Age UK Essex and Neighbourhood Watch Essex.
There are currently two agends providing a service for all villages of the Dengie Hundred.
