The Outcomes Star for people caring for others
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:
- The caring role
- Managing at home
- Time for yourself
- How you feel
The Carers Star™ is underpinned by a Journey of Change that has five steps:
- Cause for concern
- Getting help
- Making changes
- Finding what works
- As good as it can be
