Village Agents are local people employed on a part-time basis to become trusted members of their communities and a valuable resource. They make home visits where necessary and may carry out a series of practical checks related to safety in the home (e.g. smoke alarms, falls prevention), benefits entitlement and energy efficiency. Visits are followed up when necessary by experts who will provide specialist information, advice and services e.g. the fire service and social care.
