Northern Fells Group Village Agents

Village agent scheme in Northern Fells area

What does it do?

Village Agents organise events in their parishes but their main work is visiting people at home, one to one, to help with a great variety of queries and to ensure people find the assistance they need.

They are friendly, local contacts, each based in one or two of our parishes, who will help people to obtain assistance and advice from a wide range of organisations and services. We know that, living in such a rural area with helping organisations often at a distance in different towns, people often do not know where to turn for help. The Village Agents are trained to know who to contact and where – and how to find out who and where! They will introduce people to the help they need, and will do their best to make sure that they get that help.
