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

Services and information for young people

As you go through your teenage years and move into adulthood you may encounter harmful influences and/or take part in ‘risk taking’ activities such as unprotected sex, drugs and alcohol.

If you want advice or to learn accurate information about any of these subjects iZONE is the place for you. iZONE is a one stop shop of local links for young people, where you can find information and services from housing to financial advice.
