Additional information:

The Just Ask! Village Agents help bridge the gap between the local community and the statutory and voluntary organisations able to offer help and support. Village Agents have a wide range of contacts and provide high-quality information, promote access to various services and work with individual residents or groups to identify unmet needs in the community.
Your Village Agent lives locally and can provide face to face information and support to enable individuals to make informed choices about their future needs. All Village Agents are CRB checked and operate in the strictest confidence.
