The Integration StarTM
The Outcomes Star for refugees
Copyright: Triangle Consulting Social Enterprise Limited
The Integration Star is designed for use with refugees needing support to integrate into their new country and to build a new life there.
If your service also supports asylum seekers, you can use the Integration Star with them, but because it is written for refugees, you will need to make some scales more verbally relevant as you complete them together, particularly the “Education and work” scale.
The Integration Star was developed by Triangle during 2020 with collaboration from the Refugee Council, Triangle would also like to thank the following partner organisations and Refugee Community Organisations for their participation:
RETAS (Refugee Education Training Advice Service) Leeds, Leeds Refugee Forum, Path Yorkshire, Goodwin Development Trust, Humber Community Advice Services (H-CAS), Refugee Action Kingston, Iranian Association, Diversity Living Services, Bahar Women’s Association, Action for Community Development, West Yorkshire Somali Association, DAMASQ, Stepping Stone 4 and Leeds Swahili Community. This project is part funded by the European Union Asylum, Migration, and Integration Fund.
The Integration Star covers eight areas:
3. Practical English
4. Education and work
5. Family and children
6. Community and connections
7. Laws, systems and services
8. Health and well-being
Full resources are available for organisations with a Star Licence and training for all workers and managers using the Star. We are also actively researching into the psychometric properties of the Integration Star and Star data and intend on publishing a factsheet for this Star. Contact us for more information.
