Dudley Council is working with our partners, stakeholders, community groups, schools and residents to build a new ‘Child Friendly Dudley’.
We are setting up the initiative to link people, groups and business together to create a brighter future for our children and young people.
We want to put the voices of the next generation at the heart of everything we do and similar initiatives have been used successfully in other towns and cities in the UK. The legacy of Child Friendly Dudley will shape the way organisations such as Dudley Council operate in the future.
Perhaps it means greater coordination of sport and recreation activities, help for new mums, support for schools in raising children’s aspirations, better and more diverse employment opportunities for young people who are taking their first steps into work or more safe spaces for children to play and be creative and free.
We are bringing everyone together to make this happen and following our survey, we are now working with partners, organisations and groups to see Child Friendly Dudley means to people before we take our next steps.
