This is an initial preliminary market testing exercise in order to seek the market’s views on the development and potential direction of a local model of services, the view of the market around supplying these services, and the level of interest in this possible transformational activity.

Dudley has experienced increases in the number of children and families in need of help, support and protection over the last decade. Following a period of sustained increases, the number of Children Looked After (CLA) by Dudley Council has recently reduced and stabilised but still remains high. This, along with limited capacity in the placement market, has created a situation whereby children and young people do not always benefit from a placement that is most appropriate to their needs or in line with their wishes

We are therefore considering the development and implementation of creative service models which provide outcome focussed and financially sustainable solutions across the Children’s Services continuum. The initial focus will be on services that support Children Looked After.

The Council will hold an initial briefing event for any organisations interested in finding out more on Thursday 29th November 2018 14:00 to 15:30 at Lifecentral Church, Little Cornbow, Halesowen, B63 3AJ.
