VIP Star™

The Outcomes Star for visually impaired people

Copyright: Triangle Consulting Social Enterprise Limited

The VIP Star is designed for blind and partial sighted people, with specific accessibility features built into the VIP Star Online and the VIP paper-based materials.

The VIP Star was developed by Triangle with the Pocklington Trust and Blind Veterans UK.

The VIP Star covers nine key outcome areas:

  1. Managing visual impairment
  2. Health
  3. Where you live
  4. Looking after yourself
  5. Meaningful activity
  6. Social life
  7. Money
  8. How you feel
  9. Dignity

Each of the nine outcomes areas applies an underlying five-stage Journey of Change in a specific way – some are related to changes people need to make and some are about their circumstances and situation. The end points for all nine areas link to maximising independence and well-being, or circumstances being as good as they can be.

Full resources are available for organisations with a Star Licence and training for all workers and managers using the Star.
