About Stand

We are Stand. We bring together an expert community of engagement practitioners and service change leaders with substantial experience in engaging people to inform policy, strategy, service design and transformational change programmes.

Our team has a long history of working with and for the NHS, benefitting from long-established networks and trusted relationships built in running significant engagement and communication programmes for major service reconfigurations, regional campaigns including providing communications support to COVID-19 vaccination programme, several flu vaccination and winter pressures campaigns. Meet our team here.

We are values-led and value-driven. We are confident and passionate about the work we do, and we behave and communicate in a way that demonstrates our values. We stand for something.

Our values

At Stand, how we work is as important as what we do. We’ve made a commitment to behaving and communicating in ways that demonstrate our values and are full of integrity.

Stand out

We are confident standing out. We’re proud of the work we do. We don’t feel the need to fit in. We’re committed to learning and improving.

Stand at ease

We know we’re at our best when we’re authentic. We’re kind and constructive. We don’t judge. We feel safe showing vulnerability. We’re proud of who we are.

Stand together

We support each other so we can better support our clients. We share our successes and are open about our challenges.

Stand firm

Our values are important to us. They guide our thinking, our behaviours, and our actions. We hold ourselves and each other openly to account on them.
