Dudley MBC: Your Borough Your Home
Your Borough, Your Home is the local magazine with important information for Dudley Borough residents.
This edition includes updates for the next few months as well as support for everyone during the Covid-19 pandemic.
" Covid-19 has had a huge impact on our lives for almost a year now. We know it’s been challenging for everyone and so many residents and businesses have relied on support from the council more than ever before.
Throughout the pandemic we have managed to keep most of our services going, which has highlighted how much people need them. Its impact on jobs has also brought increased worry to families.
In this edition we’ve highlighted the range of opportunities in the borough to retrain and gain new skills and qualifications, along with the support available to find employment or advance your career. Please do have a look at what’s on offer.
We’ve news on a £15million boost to the borough’s extra care housing offer, which will allow people over 55 to continue living independently, and a peak at the new control room at the centre of our £1.7million CCTV network investment.
There’s also information on the importance of symptom free testing if you are a key worker or are unable to work from home, to help reduce the risk of transmission to family, friends and work colleagues.
As a borough, it is vital we continue to work together to tackle this dreadful coronavirus pandemic.
There is light at the end of the tunnel with the vaccine role out, but please continue to follow the latest government guidance."
Cllr Patrick Harley,
Leader of Dudley Council
