My name is Tracey Smith and I am Martock Job Club Coordinator and part of the Our Place Martock team looking at ways to make Martock an even better, self reliant and vibrant community.
Following a period of community engagement and conversation, door step interviews, community events, Christmas events, questionnaires, evaluations, the list goes on as we realised the most important part of the whole project was listening to our residents. From this research the core values and aims for Our Place Martock were developed:
Building Self reliance
Access to Services
Addressing social isolation
We are currently developing and building on services already in Martock and pioneering new ideas to strengthen our community.
A very exciting 2015 ahead for Martock
