The Outcomes Star

The Outcomes Star™ is a suite of tools used for measuring change for supporting and measuring change when working with people. 

The Outcomes Star™ both measures and supports progress for service users towards self-reliance or other goals. The Stars are designed to be completed collaboratively as an integral part of keywork.

They are sector wide tools - different versions of the Star include homelessness, mental health and young people. All versions consists of a number of scales based on an explicit model of change which creates coherence across the whole tool and a Star Chart onto which the service user and worker plot where the service user is on their journey.

The attitudes and behaviour expected at each of the points on each scale are clearly defined, usually in detailed scale descriptions, summary ladders or a quiz format.

The Outcomes Star™ is widely used by Services in Oxfordshire.
