Dudley’s first Carers strategy was developed in 2007, revised in 2010 and 2012-2013, with its implementation overseen by the Carers Strategy Group. The introduction of the Care Act 2014 and Children and Families Act 2014 has significantly changed the rights of carers. .
Dudley Carers Alliance are currently developing a new strategy to reflect issues carers face today, their concerns and aspirations. The strategy will identify key aims an priorities in developing support for carer across the borough.
