A brand new online tool for people who need to find out more about adult social care and support options available to them.
Find out full details on all of our services across the borough on the Dudley Community Information Directory.
Dudley borough is a large and diverse area with a multi-cultural population. We aim to ensure that information on our services is communicated in the most appropriate way to anyone in the borough who requires information in a different language or format.
This is our opportunity to reflect on the progress we have made over the year, identify key achievements and challenges and to set out our priorities for the year ahead. Due to the challenges of Covid 19, we have not been able to produce this annual report in recent years but a 2021/22 version is currently underway and will be available soon.
Check out the 'Jargon Buster' developed in partnership by service users, carers and authorities for you.
As part of the government’s adult social care reform agenda, local authorities were required to complete a 'fair cost of care' exercise in 2022 to arrive at a shared understanding with providers of the local cost of providing care. This includes publishing a market sustainability plan detailing how they plan to move towards sustainable costs of care (where this is not already being paid) over the next three years. See the government papers on adult social care reform and market sustainability.
Local authorities were required to submit draft documents and reports by 14 October 2022 to the Department of Health and Social Care , this included cost of care reports and a provisional market sustainability plan.
Dudley Council has completed this and the results of surveys undertaken, alongside other provider feedback and data, are now informing the development of the council's provisional market sustainability plan. The documents below are the cost of care reports for care homes and domiciliary (home) care, plus the market sustainability plan.
