Community Services

Neighbourhood Warden

Stroud District Council Neighbourhood Wardens  engage with the local community to help  support vulnerable people,  offer free home security and crime prevention advice and to advise on dealing with bogus callers, antisocial behaviour, hate crime and bullying.
In addition, they work to keep our environment clean and green by dealing with such issues as litter, fly tipping, dog fouling and graffitti.

Sadly, we have had a stream of wadens for Eastington area come and go, and (as at Dec 2019) we do not seem to have our ‘own’ warden – however, the main conact is  Carol Novoth who should be able to help with any queries.
Phone Carol on : 07811 263075 to report or seek advice on any of the above matters.

Village Agent/
Community Wellbeing service.

The Village Agent service has now been replaced by a service called  ‘Community Connectors’ or ‘Community Wellbeing Service’.   This is run by GRCC – (Gloucestershire Rural Community Council see www.grcc.org.uk/)

It is a free and confidential service aiming to connect you to the appropriate local assistance (charity, organisation etc) if you have problems related to mental or physical health, general fitness, social isolation, debt, berevement or other challenges to your ‘wellbeing’.

Info is available at https://www.grcc.org.uk/individuals-and-families/community-wellbeing-service

To make a referral to the Cotswold Community Wellbeing Service  you can contact your GP Surgery OR contact GRCC by phone on 01452 528491 or by email to     cws.grcc@nhs.net

However, it gets complicated as there are various ‘service providers’.  We come under ‘Stroud’ area (or ‘Stroud and Berkeley Vale’) and the providers of the service are called The Independence Trust, which you can find here:
