There seems to be some evidence that placing links within naturally written sentences is more effective for passing on juice (as opposed to footers or sidebars), so if you can do that in a way that works for your visitors, you may see better results.
This is how the links to these pages currently work.
However the links come from the next level of links rather than directly from the home page.
The results seem random at present so I think I'll hold fire for a bit longer before I do anything else.
