Essential Maintenance

Due to essential maintenance, our estore payment system will be unavailable at different times between 8am and 4pm on Sunday 14 April. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

This is an exciting time to join the children’s services team in Dudley as our new approach takes shape. We are looking for people to share their experiences and bring new ideas and energy to the team.

We have the highest ambitions for our children and young people. Revitalised council leadership arrangements, a cross political and partner improvement programme have accelerated our efforts to support and strengthen the services that we deliver to children and families.

Alongside this there is momentum and a strong commitment to building and strengthening our alliances with partners to improve our collective offer to children and young people. Where strengths are discovered, they will be built upon and where weaknesses are found, they will be challenged and overcome.

We want Dudley to be a place where children are safe and thriving

We are fully supported by our Elected Members and there is a commitment across the partnerships to work holistically with us and to support us.
