Developing Independent Living Solutions
Community Agents Essex is a well-established countywide service (excluding Thurrock and Southend) supporting adults (18 years +) to live independently. We are now part of the Essex Wellbeing Service, but still provide the same service as we have been doing for over 8 years now. It is a free to access home visiting service for those who require this, often due to being older, having a disability or in a caring role for a loved one.
We do not provide caring services.
Community Agents Essex consists of a network of countywide agents based in local communities who can visit an individual's home to provide support to develop independent living solutions, often from within their local community.
Community Agents service is based on well-established principles and continues to:
- Promote health and independence
- Reduce social isolation
- Find practical solutions to daily living
- Provide confidential trusted Information
- Inform choice and reduce confusion
- Increase individual and community resilience
This might be helping to find a local club or group to increase social interaction, support with form filling or assessing the home for equipment to prevent falls.
Essex Wellbeing service is an alliance of partners, led by Provide CIC. It brings together organisations to provide a range of services to support people in their health and wellbeing, whether to stop smoking, live independently, reduce social isolation or manage weight to reduce health issues. Services can be accessed via the website or phoning Essex Wellbeing Service (contact details below). The partnership includes Provide CIC, Priority Digital Health, RCCE, Age Well East, HCRG and Terrence Higgins Trust.
