Community Agents is an Essex-wide project, providing support to vulnerable older people and their informal carers within their own communities.

With a growing elderly population the work of Community Agents is crucial in helping people maintain their independence and confidence and prevent social exclusion.

Community Agents does not replace social care. It encourages people to help themselves and one another and in doing so to build stronger, more resilient communities.

ITV Anglia highlighted Brenda's story in a news item in December 2016.
