Jonathan’s Three to Fix for Martock
1. Adult Social Care
Ensuring individuals effected by cuts in Social Care are supported within their communities by local Projects, groups and Somerset County Council.
2. Child Care
Working with local Pre-school providers to ensure they are able to provide the full 30 hours of free provision to families close to their homes.
3. Supporting Villages
Supporting villages to help ensure each area has a viable bus link with Yeovil Town centre. Reducing rural isolation and supporting access to employment.
