FWL & Associates
Consultancy + Change Management for Local Government



Individually and as a team, our associates have a growing reputation among local authorities that means we are referred and recommended time and again.

Many of our clients have extended our contracts or commissioned us for additional services and projects because they have been so pleased with what we have delivered for them.

We are proud of the relationships we build with our clients and stakeholders. We believe this makes for more effective, long-lasting change.

Here's what some of our clients say about us:

SEND Higher Needs Development Plan - Shropshire County Council

FWL Associates facilitated a comprehensive review of SEND high needs arrangements and worked with the local authority to develop a new SEND strategy for utilising the Special Provision capital fund allocation. The approach taken by FWL complemented the council’s ethos of co-production through engaging with a range of stakeholders and ensuring effective consultation whilst undertaking detailed analysis of available data and information to develop a number of recommendations.

FWL were then commissioned to support the implementation of these recommendations which included the development of a number of school based resourced provisions and the development and submission of a SEND free school bid.

Jonathan and Colin have a wealth of knowledge and experience in SEN and disability and local authority governance and procedures that enables them to operate efficiently and independently. I am happy to endorse them for their excellent work in this area and would readily engage their services again.

Development of resource provision - Shropshire County Council

FWL have been of great assistance in the process of establishing our Resource Provision. Colin’s knowledge of the process has been reassuring and his guidance has been appreciated. This process could easily be a burden for headteachers but Colin has effectively drafted communications and timetables in a way that has allowed me avoid heavy bureacracy that could impact negatively on school life. He is always available for questions and queries and responds in a timely manner.
