- GRCC (Gloucestershire Rural Community Council) Community Action in Gloucestershire
Gloucestershire Rural Community Council aims to strengthen and champion community action throughout the county.
GRCC provides the Community Wellbeing Service for the Cotswold District Area. The service works in each district of Gloucestershire, and within GP practices. Five providers deliver the new service across the county with each provider covering a specific area, ensuring that the service is tailored to the needs of the local area, based on extensive local knowledge.
Anyone over the age of 16 living in Gloucestershire, or registered with a Gloucestershire GP, can access the Community Wellbeing Service. Referrals can be made by a health or social care professional, a Voluntary and Community Sector Group, members of the community, as well as by self-referral.
The service offers one-to-one support for individuals and may also signpost or refer people to activities and groups available in their area. Community Wellbeing Agents have extensive local knowledge and will be able to facilitate local activity.
The service may be suitable for people:
- in times of change, for example after redundancy, health issues or retirement;
- in times of emotional hardship, such as after a bereavement;
- who are worried about debt or financial issues;
- who don’t know where to turn for support;
- who would like to volunteer in their community.
Gloucestershire Road Safety Partnership Community Hub
The Road Safety Community Engagement Hub is the new one-stop-shop for communities who have a road safety concern in their locality. The Hub isn’t a replacement for Road Safety Partnership (RSP), or any existing services, rather it is a enhancement that compliments everything that that they do, and joins forces with colleagues in Police and Highways to provide the very best resolution or advice to the communities they serve.
Normally, road safety concerns fall into two broad categories – concerns about the ‘road’ or place, or concerns about the unsafe manner in which some ‘people’ behave on the road – and it would be very helpful to you if your concern is directed to the most appropriate place in the first instance to provide you with the help and advice you are seeking.
One Gloucestershire – Fit For The Future
