Just Ask! Village Agents
Village Agents help to bridge the gap between rural areas of
Bedford Borough and the statutory and voluntary organisations able
to offer help and support. Village Agents have a wide range
of contacts and provide high-quality information, promote access to
various services and work with individual residents or groups to
identify unmet needs in the community.
Just Ask! Village Agents live locally and
can provide face to face information and support to enable
individuals to make informed choices about their future needs. All
Agents are checked under the Disclosure and Barring Service
(formerly the Criminal Records Bureau) and operate in the strictest
Freephone 0800 039 1234
Please leave a message giving your contact details and the
village where you live, and the appropriate agent for your area
will call you back.
Just Ask! Village Agents can be contacted via
the Freephone number 0800 039 1234.
Village Agents are employed part-time by BRCC, funded by Bedford
Borough Council and ‘the Big Lottery’ .
Run as a pilot project in certain parishes in 2010,
Just Ask! has now expanded to cover the
whole of the Borough's rural area.
The Village Agents also work on BRCC’s Wheels
in Motion project helping rural residents access wider transport
options and meet their individual travel needs. For more info on
Wheels in Motion please contact Amy Baker on 01234 834934 or
