This website has been developed to make data on Dudley Borough available to everyone.  It contains a range of resources, reports and information which help describe the population and place across a variety of topic areas and perspectives.

The information is structured in tiers so users can view just key messages if that suits their needs, with those interested in more specific information able to drill down to a more detailed level.  To get started have a look at the featured pages and recent news items at the bottom of this page, or get an overview on The Borough page.

The site will be continually updated and expanded so pay attention to the News page to keep up with the latest changes.

As All About Dudley Borough is a new website please let us know what else you would find useful and any suggestions for improvements.  We want it to work for you so send us your feedback using our Contact Us page.


The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment is a statutory document which must be produced by each local authority area. In Dudley Borough we have decided to focus on the strengths of the community as well as its needs, therefore our local version is called the Joint Strategic Assessment (JSA).

The JSA is a collaborative project involving local organisations and interest groups, including Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council, Dudley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the Police, the Fire Service and the voluntary sector.

The role of the JSA is to help identify the needs of local residents and provide evidence to the Dudley Health and Wellbeing Board (HWBB), so it can coordinate strategies, increase efficiency, secure better care, and fulfil its responsibility for improving the health and wellbeing of all Dudley Borough residents and reducing inequalities.

This website is Dudley’s JSA and will inform the Health and Wellbeing priorities.
