Children and young people looked after by Dudley Council are amongst the most vulnerable members of our society. As corporate parents we want for Children in Care what every good parent would want for their own children.
We therefore all have a duty to ask ourselves:
If this were my child, would it be good enough for them?
In Dudley, we want to help Children and Young People fulfil their potential. We will work alongside children in care to make sure that we understand what is important to them and what our priorities should be.
Every elected member is a Corporate Parent and all members and officers of the Council have a responsibility to improve the life chances of children and young people in care.
The Corporate Parenting Strategy highlights the collective responsibility we all have in fulfilling our duties as corporate parents to all young people looked after by the Council setting out what our priorities will be for the next 2 years.
