Rhosddu Community Council are looking for a Community Agent to operate within the Rhosddu area.

Community Agents work to connect people in their area to the services and support that they need, and help older people find their way to activities or services which they would enjoy or find useful.
Making the most of local activities and services is a good way to keep fit, active and independent, but not everyone knows what is available. People with health or other difficulties may need that bit of help to access and benefit from activities and services available to everyone. Community Agents will build relationships with organisations such as the Police, PCSO’s, Fire Service, Ambulance Service, GPs, local libraries and housing groups to ensure that more vulnerable and isolated people have access to the support provided. Fixed-term contract for up to 12 months
