Needs Analysis

Any new programme should only be implemented once a thorough needs analysis has taken place.  There are different templates that may assist you with this. 

Needs analysis work involves understanding as fully as possible: 

·         the population that your organisation serves

·         the range of services already available to them

·         how much these services cost and how effective they are  

There may well be a great deal that your organisation does well in that it delivers good outcomes and good value for money. But there may be some existing services which are costly and which have poor or immeasurable outcomes. 

Your needs analysis work should identify the strengths in what you already offer as well as the gaps that need to be addressed.  That way, you are able to articulate whether or not KEEP is going to be the right programme for your organisation and the people you serve.
