SCHW Consortium Model

SCHW has developed a consortium model to support groups of SCHW organisations to work closely together, to share expertise and experience and to apply for joint funding.  To date the model has successfully attracted over £350,000 into SCHW organisations and around 25% of SCHW organisations have been involved in consortium groups.  A leaflet on the model has been produced and can be accessed here.
