Author: Sohila Bibi

We hope you are well and are keeping safe during this difficult time. Although we have all had to change the way we are working, please be assured the DPO traded service is always here to assist you with any queries you may have. You can contact the schoolsdpo@walsall.gov.uk inbox for any queries or concerns and these will be answered in the best way possible.

Additionally, I am pleased to attach the second edition of our DPO Traded Services Newsletter. This will provide you with an update on what our service has achieved so far and of any upcoming future events.
