Key duties

Growing up in Dudley
Creative Needs Assessment

We are delighted to announce that we are now working in partnership with Rosa Robinson and Allie John from FRAME Collective CIC to develop a creative needs assessment.


In November 2022 Dudley Council’s Public Health commissioned a creative needs assessment to understand what it’s like to grow up in Dudley, from conception to adulthood. Growing Up in Dudley is a year-long project capturing people’s lived experiences using creative, participatory and qualitative methods.


The project aims to ensure that parents’, carers’, children and young people’s lived experiences and hopes play a central role in shaping the future of services and support across Dudley. The project’s findings will inform strategic work programmes, including Start for Life and Family Hubs, Child-Friendly Dudley, School Readiness, and provision for children and young people with additional needs.

FRAME Collective CIC are an independent, not-for-profit organisation specialising in people-centred research, engagement and inclusive innovation across a range of health and social inequalities.


They have extensive experience in undertaking qualitative research in community settings, working with diverse populations, practitioners and community groups, and are known for their ability to engage successfully and meaningfully with ‘less heard from’ communities and groups
