Welcome to Healthy Dudley. This is the new public health website.

What is falls prevention?

Falls can have a significant impact on a person’s health.
 
There are ways you can reduce your risk of having a fall by making simple changes to your home. Doing exercises to improve your strength and balance can also reduce your risk.

Dudley Falls Prevention

Dudley Falls Prevention is an innovative partnership made up of:

  • Dudley Council’s Adult Social Care
