The Children and Young People's Alliance represents a new way of working together and in collaboration with children, young people and families.
Dudley Children and Young People's Alliance
Dudley Children and Young People Alliance provides the overall leadership and integrated accountability for delivery of improved outcomes for children and young people in Dudley, and their effective transition to adulthood.
It is the overall alliance between all those agencies who play a part in improving outcomes for children and young people in the borough. The Alliance represents a new way of working together and in collaboration with children, young people and families.
The role of the Alliance
The Alliance is responsible for strategic leadership and vision, the identification of shared priorities, as well as for resource allocation, strategic coordination and managing performance. It also has specific responsibility for delivering and monitoring the goals for improvement set out in the Dudley Children and Young People’s Alliance Strategy (see below).
The vision of the Alliance is that:
'Dudley is a place where children
and young people thrive'
The key principles are that the Alliance, and organisations which are part of the Alliance will:
Raise children and young people’s aspirations and create opportunities for them to achieve
Enable children and young people to have a voice
Work with children and young people to keep them safe and healthy
Work with children and young people when they need extra help to ensure they get the help they need.
The Alliance Board members have agreed their commitment to collectively contribute to the achievement of these goals set out in the CYPA strategy using a whole systems approach.
The outcomes framework and delivery plan contained within the strategy set out what the Alliance wants to achieve and details the specific programmes of work.
The Alliance reports to the Dudley Health and Wellbeing Board.
