Population Health & Community
We are skilled at producing population health and community profiles for health, local government, government and social sectors that include information about health and socio-economic status, the determinants of health, indicator sets and analysis of what the data is saying about your community. We develop insightful reports to guide priority setting and resource allocation. Our data analysis, reports and presentations 'tell the story', tailored to a range of audiences.
Keleher Consulting has a long history of working with local government, women’s health and community organisations in the field of gender equity and the prevention of violence against women. We have a deep knowledge of systems and services for women’s health in Victoria and nationally, as well as a long history in partnership development and working with not-for-profit sectors to maximise outcomes through collaborative advantage. Our strengths are in strategy development, consultation, stakeholder engagement and data analysis to provide an evidence base for your work.
Keleher Consulting has extensive experience in writing and reviewing Needs Assessments, having done this for many PHN and Medicare Local organisations. We can work with you to design Needs Assessments that are fit for purpose, and designed around key research questions. We will work closely with you to develop data collection plans and undertake analysis.
Keleher Consulting can also deliver a review of your current Needs Assessment with a view to strengthening the next iteration. We can identify areas of strength in your current Needs Assessment, areas that would benefit from improvement, gaps that could be filled, and summarise how your Needs Assessment compares to other similar organisations.

Applied Research Methods
We use our grounding and experience in applied research methods to ensure that your reviews and projects develop insights into those aspects of your business that you need to know more about. This could be the quality of your stakeholder engagement, or how well your funded services are meeting intended needs, or to inform change.
We specialise in designing and conducting process and impact evaluations including program logic, indicators, minimum data sets and analysis for NGOs and the health and local government sectors. Our reports are clear, strategic in their thinking and designed to inform improvement or change and development.
