Who we are

Standards Wise International is a consortium of world class experts based in the UK and other countries around the world with proven experience in undertaking projects in Senior Living and Human Services. We are a Team of experts focused on a customer driven ideology and helping organisations to move from ‘good’ to ‘high functioning’ through re-framing their approach.

The Teams experience encompasses not-for-profit organisations, government at different levels, for profit companies, developers, investors, peak bodies and tertiary institutions at the highest levels. Their knowledge on national and international trends, models, experiences, legislation and problem solving is invaluable to any project. We all share a passion to develop and successfully implement creative solutions to the housing needs, ageing process, care, lifestyle and integration of generations.

Our approach brings together a highly experienced ‘think tank’ to initially explore opportunities/projects/proposals to offer a solution(s) and then narrow this down to a team of experts matched to your organisation/government department/company who work with you for the entirety or in defined stages.

Whether it is quality, customer service, models of care, staffing, governance, risk management, compliance and service delivery, the principles we apply are consistent with our approach.

Standards Wise International applies the principles to the following sectors:

  • Aged Care
  • Health
  • Community
  • Residential
  • Disability
  • Mental Health
  • Housing sectors

David Stevens, Director of Standards Wise International, is also a highly respected member of COMMONAGE, consulting to the Commonwealth of Nations at an International level for Governments on policy and program development. He is currently developing a five country cross cultural study into the effects of Depression on Chronic Disease Management with Oxford University, UK, and a set of International Senior Living Standards for global adoption.
