Who we are

Standards Wise works across Australia providing advice to small, medium and large human service organisations, Local, State and Federal Government, and private business. We provide frameworks to assist organisations in developing their quality and management systems, to exceed Standards, and importantly improve outcomes for consumers.

David Stevens, founding director of Standards Wise, explains the approach:

"We are focused on a customer driven ideology and helping organisations to move from ‘good’ to ‘high functioning’ through re-framing their approach. 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 applies the principles to the following sectors:

  • Aged Care
  • Health
  • Community
  • Residential
  • Disability
  • Mental Health
  • AOD
  • Aboriginal
  • CALD
  • Housing sectors

David Stevens, Director of Standards Wise, 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.
