The Outcomes Star for women who have experienced domestic violence

Copyright: Triangle Consulting Social Enterprise Limited

The Empowerment Star™ is suitable for use in women’s refuge or outreach services, where:

  • Domestic abuse is the main factor in women using the service
  • There is an ongoing support or relationship between a keyworker and the women using the service
  • The service is holistic and the aim of the service is to empower women to live a life free from abuse, independently of the service

The Empowerment Star™ was developed by Triangle in collaboration with Eaves Housing and funding from London Councils.

The Empowerment Star™ covers outcome areas that have been found to be critical in empowering women with experience of domestic abuse to build a new life:

  1. Safety
  2. Accommodation
  3. Support networks
  4. Legal issues
  5. Health and well-being
  6. Money
  7. Children
  8. Work and learning
  9. Empowerment and self-esteem

The underlying model of change underpinning the Empowerment Star™ is a Journey of Change with five steps:

  1. Not ready for help
  2. Accepting help
  3. Believing
  4. Learning and rebuilding
  5. Independence & choice
