Over the past 15 years, WP has been commissioned by over 40 local authorities in the UK and by over 250 firms of solicitors. We have also undertaken work for four different IFAs, residential establishments, schools, one university and many members of the public.

“It’s so good to work with a provider that just gets things done”

Head of Service - London Borough

We have service level agreements with many local authorities and others simply spot purchase when the need arises. We are flexible and adaptive to commissioner’s needs.

You can also request a meeting with our Chief Executive, Mark Willis or Executive Consultant, Philip King, regarding the different types of specialist work WP undertake and importantly about how we can reduce your fees through commissioning work with us. We can also deliver audit and quality assurance functions, provide short term solutions to staffing problems, clear backlogs of assessments or provide expertise in a range of situations. Whatever the need, we have the solution.

“I was very impressed by the way my enquiry was dealt with right from the start. WP employed a high standard of professionalism & were very quick in responding to my enquiry and setting the waves in motion"
