Consortium Survey

In this month’s bulletin we promised a special feature on the things the survey has told us and how these messages are influencing the work of the Consortium going forward.

The table below provides a snapshot of the main findings that came out of the survey responses. If you or your organisation want a separate discussion or briefing on the results please contact Beryl Heath on

One of the major things coming out of the survey was the apparent lack of awareness amongst member organisations of the added value offer from our 4 Partner Firms. We make no apology then for repeating the information below about the added value offers available to you.

Are you getting the most from your Consortium Added Value Offers?

What are added value offers?

Added Value offers are provided to all Consortium member organisations by the partner firms appointed to the Solicitors Framework irrespective of whether or not your organisation is currently or has been a client of that firm.

The offer is in addition to the support that the partner firms provide to the Consortium training programme, the Annual Training Event, the PR and Website and Practice Management Groups and running and organisation of the Consortium generally.
What sort of things are offered by the partner firms by way of added value?

The four partner firms, DACBeachcroft, Geldards, Hill Dickinson and Weightmans all provide specific offers to Consortium members by way of added value.

However their offers generally cover or include:

  • use of the firms office facilities
  • free helpline service
  • use of library, research facilities and precedent bank
  • assistance with secondments, work shadowing or placements, coaching and mentoring

Where can I find full details of what is on offer from each of the partner firms?

You can access the details of all the offers from the partner firms under each of the firm’s names in the secure area of the website- left hand menu.

You will need to be logged into the website of course.
