About Dudley Lodge
Dudley Lodge is a UK registered non-profit making charity and company limited by guarantee. Dudley Lodge was established in 1895 and is one of the leading Family Assessment Centres in England and Wales.
Dudley Lodge operates from two Centres; Dudley Lodge Family Assessment Centre in Coventry and Bonner House Family Assessment Centre in Birmingham. Both Centres are regulated by Ofsted and both have been judged as ‘Outstanding’ in relation to the assessments they provide.
Dudley Lodge is a nation-wide resource, and well respected by local authorities, solicitors and Children’s Guardians both in the Midlands and further afield. We work to agreed Assessment Requirements and aim to tailor all our approaches and interventions to reflect the needs of each individual family. Our approach always remains child centred.
We promote a culture which encourages people to be open to new experiences, recognise their strengths and strive to achieve. This relates to everyone who accesses, and works within, our services.
Dudley Lodge holds values that govern and guide our practice in dealing with each other; our professional colleagues, clients and suppliers, and in achieving our corporate objectives.
We believe that:
- All children have the right to have their safety and welfare needs met.
- All adults have a responsibility to respond to concerns, worries and doubts regarding the safety and wellbeing of children wherever they may be.
- It is people who make the difference in any enterprise and to give their best they must be treated with dignity and respect.
This set of values forms part of our ‘Standards and Behaviours’ that all staff working at both Centres endeavour to meet.
