We work in part, by utilising the skills and talents of individuals and groups. We then channel these into practical responses which contribute to building civic society and positive outcomes for all involved.
For some this involves being part of our short term volunteering projects with a group of other like minded volunteers and travelling to another country. For others it involves undertaking longer term volunteering through our placements scheme run in partnership with STAND International and preferred partners in the other european countries we are involved in.
We do this by :
STAND INTERNATIONAL is a Scottish charity (SCO37667) dedicated to working with marginalised groups and individuals in disadvantaged communities in Scotland.
Working with individuals and groups we help identify how they can harness their talents, experience of exclusion and their genuine compassion to assist others in either their local community or the wider global community.
Over the years we have also developed a number of partnerships with organisations in a variety of european countries including the UK who are keen to address the multi faceted layers of discrimination and exploitation whether in relation to age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity or social stigma. Having identified suitable partners we then develop voluntary projects which would benefit from joint working and then agree on the duration of the project to ensure that we do not become involved in “hit and run” work but that any work is measurable and sustainable.
