Children first and at the heart of all we do

 

Through our ‘Child Friendly Dudley’ agenda we have the highest ambitions for our children and young people.

 

Relationships are key to our vision and our values and beliefs are founded on the principles of Restorative Practice which provides us with our framework for practice and organisational culture

 

Dudley borough is a great place to call home and with our community-led vision, Forging a Future for All, now is the time to join us and be part of our exciting journey.

 

We recognise the importance of investing in our workforce and are committed to encouraging staff to take up the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills through our learning and development offer.

 

This is provided by our innovative Centre for Professional Practice which is gaining a growing reputation in the sector.

 

We have developed a rewarding career pathway for all social workers and children’s services staff. Our well-established programme supports not only newly-qualified social workers, but also invests in continuing professional development through our membership of Research in Practice and our bespoke and enhanced restorative practice training programme across social work and early help.

 

This is proving to be a progressive and exciting path for professionals, swiftly resulting in performance improvements and innovations that are making big differences to our children, young people and families.
