NATnIMP available online.
The NAT takes an holistic approach, and provides insights into coming out, school, hate incidents, homelessness, mental health, alcohol, drugs and smoking, sexual health, isolation and support, and more.
It is used as part of the assessment and referral process: it takes about an hour to interview a member and then, using the automatically created report and key findings summary, the worker and member agree an action plan which can be regularly reviewed. Referrals can then be made as appropriate, e.g. to the GUM clinic, for counselling, for housing support, further 1-1 support, etc.
You can register now to start using the NAT.
The annual fee for a typical LGBT group is £70 and covers everything they need, including the use of NATnIMP with all their members, the individual and cumulative reports, and support. The registration fee is £30. Other agencies with different requirements should contact us.

GALYIC have pioneered the development and use of NATnIMP, and now ReSURV in partnership with GALYIC have put the NAT online so that other LGBT groups and relevant agencies can benefit from these tools.
|Needs Assessment Tool (NAT)
Using evidence from research conducted in 1998 and several years experience of responding to the needs of LGBT young people, GALYIC decided there was a need for an easy-to-use but comprehensive method of assessing the needs of its members. By 2005 GALYIC had developed the NAT. and began to use it.
|Impact Assessment Tool (IMP)
In 2007 Calderdale PCT funded GALYIC to conduct further needs assessments with members, develop an Impact Assessment Tool (IMP) which would provide evidence of the success (or not) of the GALYIC interventions, as well as finding out what other services were doing to meet the needs of LGBT young people.
