The Dudley Disability Service supports children and young people with disabilities to live independent, happy and fulfilling lives.

Support services

Making a child or young person’s life easier by getting the appropriate level of support needed at the right time, in the right way, with the right results.

Transitions services - preparing for adulthood

We work with young people from 14 years old who have complex needs and disabilities to transition from children’s to adult services.

We promote and maximise opportunities for young people to be as independent as possible and to be part of local communities. This is achieved via a range of appropriate pathways that support individuals to have choice, control and to achieve their individual aspirations. View Transitions.
