Walsall Council would like to recognise those companies and organisations who have made a real commitment to delivering additional social value alongside the work that they do.
We are pleased to announce that the following employers have been awarded the status of a Walsall Works Partner.
Walsall Works has awarded two local companies the status of Silver Partner and this is for their ability to demonstrate that they have delivered a significant level of social value across the areas of recruitment, skills, investment, supporting vulnerable residents, school engagement and community activities.
