Children’s Market Position Statement (Sufficiency Strategy)

Dudley Council has the highest ambitions for our children and young people. Our vision is to give children the best start in life and to support families to be independent, responsible and successful and to ensure we provide the highest levels of public protection for our most vulnerable children.

Section 22G of the Children Act 1989 sets out the local authority’s statutory duties to provide sufficient accommodation for children looked after and to plan more generally for them.
