We are STAND International. We work with disadvantaged communities across Scotland and abroad. We make a difference by offering participants in our programmes the opportunity to Start A New Day (STAND) by providing training and support and placements within partner charities abroad. 

We believe everyone has the potential to be able to turn their lives around and do something great.

No matter where you are in Scotland, we offer you an opportunity to learn and gain skills through training and learning opportunities abroad.

We want to help you to feel confident, get qualifications and help others from disadvantaged places. We take participants on multiple trips throughout the year, as well as mentors who will be by your side to support you.

We work with partner organisations to organise placements abroad in Ghana and Romania, and dependent on the political situation, Eastern European countries. They all have different activities and tasks and will work on some different skills.
