Information and Advice
Our Information and Advice service is a free to access service, available to residents of Dudley Borough aged 60 years and over.
Our Information and Advice service offers a wide range of information for a variety of issues. We’ll provide you with the facts and you can make choices and decisions knowing you have reliable information. Information is given on a one to one basis in a private area.

We also have National Factsheets which offer information on a wide range of subjects including finding help at home, local authority charging procedures for care homes, dealing with someone’s estate etc to name just a few.
