Wellbeing Agent

Village and Community Agents help older and vunerable people feel more independent, secure and have a better quality of life by offering an assisted signposting service. The Agents provide information and support to help people gain access to a wide range of services.

Your agent is  CAROL STOCKMAN and over the last eight years has been able to assist with a variety of issues including:

• Pension        • Benefits   •Home Insulation   •Free Smoke Alarms •Housing •Disability • Social care • Home Help •Hospital Discharge • Carer Support • Social Groups • Transport

This is a FREE CONFIDENTIAL service. Carol makes home visits ensuring people are aware of services that are available to them in order that they are able to make informed decisions about their own wellbeing. The scheme is managed by Gloucester Rural Community Council and funded by Gloucestershire County Council.

We also have a Specialist Agent team which is able to support anyone who has been affected by cancer over the age of 18.

If you think that Carol may be able to help you, a familymember, neighbour, friend or relative please give her a call.

Hello – my name is CAROL STOCKMAN and I have been the Village & Community Agent in this area of the North Cotswolds for the last 10+ years. From the 1st October 2017 our scheme combined with Social Prescribing to become a new service called COMMUNITY CONNECTORS. I will continue to work in the communities of Willersey, Saintbury, Aston Sub Edge, Weston Sub Edge, Mickleton, Hidcote Boyce, Ebrington, Chipping Campden, Blockley, Paxford and Draycott. In addition to this Jo Spicer works from several GP surgeries in the North Cotswolds including Chipping Campden Surgery. We, together with our other colleagues across the whole of the Cotswold District will be supporting anyone over the age of 16. As before there will be one to one support for individuals, signposting, referrals to activities & groups in our area. The service can be helpful for people

in times of change (after redundancy, health issues, retirement)

in times of emotional hardship, such as bereavement

worries around debt or financial issues

who don’t know where to turn for support

who would like to volunteer in the community

I have been fortunate to support and help many people across the North Cotswolds and I hope that I can continue to do this as a COMMUNITY CONNECTOR. This remains a FREE CONFIDENTIAL SERVICE. Thanks to those in the North Cotswolds who have supported me in my role as a Village and Community Agent and I look forward to continue to support you and the community as we move forward with this new scheme. If you think that I may be able to help you, a family member, neighbour, friend or relative please call our office on the number below and a home visit can be arranged Gloucestershire Rural Community Council (GRCC) 01452 528491 or email info@grcc.org.uk
