We have developed guidance for local area Community Justice Partnerships to use in the compilation of a Strategic Needs and Strengths Assessment (SNSA).

The development of a SNSA is a crucial step in the analysis and reporting of local priorities and is the foundation on which a local area can understand their population’s needs and the services and interventions that are in place locally. This guidance has been developed as a response to the need for support for local areas to begin this task. Download the guidance documents below:
