STAND International (ED)

Charity registered in Scotland SC037667

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 address the many layers of discrimination and exploitation whether in relation to age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity or social stigma.

Current opportunities

Your role will allow them to fulfil their potential, widen their horizons and enhance their employment opportunities whilst at the same time becoming more involved in an inclusive society.
