We recognise the most important influence in a child’s life is family. Children who grow up with safe, stable and nurturing relationships form stronger friendships, develop greater resilience, achieve more in school and are more likely to build positive relationships throughout their lives.
We are child focussed in our intent but recognise that the most effective way to help and protect children is to work alongside the whole family. Therefore strengthening families is central to our aims as we know that families have greater capacity for change when we work with them as partners. This is part of an evidence based approach known asRestorative Practice.
We aim to embed a culture across our workforce where dignity and respect is the basis for our interventions. Every member of staff will understand the principles of Restorative Practice and its ethos will underpin all of our work and align to the borough vision of ‘Forging a Future for all’.
Dudley's Early Help Strategy workshops Wednesday 7 & Friday 16 Feb 2018
The Early Help Strategy was launched in December 2015 and set out the pathways for Early Help in Dudley to ensure the right level of support is provided to children, young people and families at the right time.
A planned review of the Strategy will take place in February and representatives from across the early help partnership can attend one of two multi-agency workshops to share their views and help shape the future of early help in Dudley. Your views are critical to the development of the Early Help offer, and we would welcome your input as part of the review.
The workshops will take place on Wednesday 7th February and Friday 16th February at Saltwells EDC.
