About Us

We have a fantastic and exciting opportunity for the right people who wants to make a difference to young people and adults in the Dudley Disability Service.

Dudley Council is committed to ongoing improvement and achieving excellence.  As a result there has been a recent focus on the Dudley Disability Service which has led to a remodel of the service and an increased emphasis on strength-based practice, preparing for adulthood, independent living, and high risk and complex care needs.

We have a new head of service and new management within the service that is shaping a new direction.  The service has a clear focus on positive life outcomes for all adults: opportunities to succeed in education and work; to live independently and healthily; to have relationships and friendships; and to be included and involved in their communities. Raising aspirations for disabled adults and those around them, as well as providing integrated, forward-thinking support, is critical for them to achieve their goals and have choice and control over their lives.  

There is a recognition that to achieve this we need staff that feel supported, listened to and valued.  We see supporting our staffs professional development by  embracing flexible working, growing a learning and development culture within the service and a commitment to staff welfare is helping us to achieve this.

This service supports people with a range of disabilities who require ongoing co-ordination of their care and support needs or who have a level of complexity to their needs that require specialist intervention.
