Dudley Youth Service: For young people, by young people with young people

Dudley Youth Service's aim:

Dudley Youth Service builds relationships with young people aged 11 to 19 (up to 25 for young people with a disability) in order to develop their personal and social skills.  The service provided is delivered within the budget provided by Dudley Council and aims to meet the national targets set by the Department of Education. At the heart of our service is the involvement of young people.


UK Youth Parliament Election 2017

The UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) enables young people to use their energy and passion to change the world for the better. Run by young people for young people, UKYP provides opportunities for 11-18 year olds to use their voice in creative ways to bring about social change.

In Dudley we have two Members of Youth Parliament (MYP) and hold elections every two years, when young people across the area can vote for who they want to represent them.

The Youth Service Youth Offer

Dudley Youth Service will offer provision via two clearly identified key areas of work – Universal and Targeted. 

Universal

Universal youth work focuses delivery on identified national and local needs. Young people’s involvement in decision making will be encouraged and supported.  

Universal provision will be delivered via joint working with partners and work in schools.  Universal services will support the work of the targeted team and will also continue to work in partnership with other agencies to continuously develop provision for young people.

Targeted Offer

Dudley Council’s targeted youth support aims to ensure that the needs of vulnerable teenagers are identified early and met by agencies working together effectively – in ways that are shaped by the views and experiences of young people themselves.

There are seven key elements of targeted support.
