Local youngsters design Child Friendly Dudley logo
Budding artists have helped to create an iconic stamp for the Child Friendly Dudley movement.
Dudley Council launched its initiative, which is inspired by UNICEF’s Child Friendly Cities, in Dudley borough last year.
The logo incorporates some of Dudley borough’s most recognised and treasured buildings, which are linked together with a rainbow arch to signify a united and bright vision for the future.
The local authority is establishing a dedicated child friendly team. It will raise awareness of the range of child friendly initiatives already underway in the borough and work with partners, stakeholders, community and voluntary groups, schools and businesses to build new ones.
In return for playing their part, groups, organisations and businesses will be invited to use the recognisable logo as a badge of pride on their communication materials.
Councillor Ruth Buttery, cabinet member for children’s services, said:
Child Friendly Dudley is all about bringing the whole community together to make a lasting difference to the lives of children and young people in Dudley borough.
The movement’s recognisable logo will give the many businesses, community and faith groups, charities and individuals the chance to promote the great work they do to help children and young people in our communities.
We are so pleased that young people have been involved in the development of this beautiful stamp and together we will put the voices of the next generation at the heart of everything we do.
Several Dudley Council programmes are already enriching lives, with new schemes set to run as part of the Child Friendly Dudley programme.
