Evaluation of the KidsXpress program

A cost-benefit analysis

Deloitte Access Economics was commissioned to conduct a cost-benefit analysis to assess the economic impact of the KidsXpress program.

Deloitte Access Economics was commissioned to conduct a research project aimed at assessing the economic impact of the KidsXpress program via a cost-benefit analysis.

KidsXpress is a dynamic expressive therapy program for children aged 4-14 years that offers a non-threatening and creative environment to children. Its expressive therapy program uniquely interfaces music, art, drama and play therapies. These have been demonstrated to be effective in reducing the impact of trauma.

The assessment found that in 2015 KidsXpress was estimated to deliver net benefits of $2.0 million and generate a benefit-cost ratio of 2.76. This means that every $1 invested in the KidsXpress program generated $2.76 of benefits to society in 2015.
