The Outcomes Star for people caring for others

Copyright: Triangle Consulting Social Enterprise Limited

The Carers Star™ has been developed for use with a wide range of carers, both full time and part time.

Carer’ can refer to anyone who is providing unpaid care for a relative or other person, whether they live with the person they care for or not.

Organisations working with young carers may find that My Star™, the Outcomes Star for children and young people, is more appropriate than the Carers Star™ for carers under 18.

The Carers Star™ was developed with the Carers Trust and SEEL (Social Enterprise of East Lothian) with part-funding through the Scottish Government Change Fund.

The Carers Star™ covers seven key outcome areas:

  1. Health
  2. The caring role
  3. Managing at home
  4. Time for yourself
  5. How you feel
  6. Finances
  7. Work

The Carers Star™ is underpinned by a Journey of Change that has five steps:

  1. Cause for concern
  2. Getting help
  3. Making changes
  4. Finding what works
  5. As good as it can be
