Outcomes Focussed

At Sussex Empowered Living we focus on meeting outcomes as a means of ensuring that the service received by the people we support reflects the goals and priorities that they themselves identify as important. We use our ability to meet outcomes as a key indicator of our performance and consider this paramount in the provision of excellent care and support.

Right from the outset we work with the people we support to identify their life goals and priorities and use these as the main focus during the care planning process. The progress of each person we support towards their life goals and priorities and greater levels of self-reliance is reviewed regularly through the use of the Outcome Star.

The Outcomes Star is a unique suite of evidence based key-working tools, consisting of around 27 individual Stars carefully adapted for different client groups to support and measure change. At Sussex Empowered Living we use the individual Stars specific to those with learning disabilities, mental health needs and autistic spectrum disorders to support them to understand where they are with regards to achieving their goals and priorities and greater levels of self-reliance and what they need to do to progress. It also enables the individual and the worker to identify any difficulties in key areas, and supports them to find ways to move forward.
