Children's social care services

Sue Butcher

Chief Officer for Children's Services , Dudley Council

'We want Dudley to be a place where children

are safe and thriving.'


Dudley Council has the highest ambitions for our children and young people. Revitalised council leadership arrangements, a cross political and partner improvement programme have accelerated our efforts to support and strengthened the services that we deliver to children and families.


Alongside this there is momentum and a strong commitment to building and strengthening  our alliances with partners to improve our collective offer to children and young people. Where strengths are discovered, they will be built upon and where weaknesses are found, they will be challenged and overcome.


We are fully supported by our Elected Members and there is a commitment across the partnerships to work holistically with us and to support us.



The service areas

Children’s social care services are provided through four service areas. Social care staff may choose to work in any of these areas.

This is an exciting time to join the children’s services team in Dudley as our new approach takes shape.  We are looking for people to share their experiences and bring new ideas and energy to the team.
