Silver Lined Horizons is a youth engagement company

As the generation of the future, we believe young people should be empowered to have a say in the decisions that will affect them. We will inspire you to involve and empower young people via the process of youth engagement. We believe young people have so much to offer – a unique perspective, innovative ideas, creativity. This invaluable insight can enhance your organisation’s productivity and culture.

Do you have an idea about a business or service that would benefit from that unique youth insight but don’t know where to start? Silver Lined Horizons! Don’t have the time, staff, skills or capacity to run a project in-house? Silver Lined Horizons! Need a fast-turnaround and value-for-money solution? Yep, Silver Lined Horizons!

We believe that opportunities exist from across all organisations to foster young people’s appetite for making a difference. By harnessing young people’s insight in fun, creative and meaningful ways, we strengthen each young person’s personal and social development, often unlocking young people’s passion and hope for the future.

We can help you get there.

We offer training (including online training) and consultancy services to organisations that are keen to find ways of engaging young people in the way a programme or service should be designed or delivered. We provide end-to-end project management and offer an exceptionally high quality of service that will tap into the energy and resources that young people bring to benefit your organisation. We can help you at any point during your project life cycle.

our-values-Icons-passion

Passion

Passion

Our passion, commitment, determination and energy drive us to constantly innovate and take on new challenges with young people. We are emotionally committed – it’s why we do the work.
our-values-Icons-vibrancy

Vibrancy

We are motivated, we are colourful, we are full of energy! Constantly pushing ourselves to thrive and achieve new goals, we want that vibrancy to rub off on young people so that they can flourish.

Everyone has a voice but not everyone uses it. Working collaboratively with young people, we assist them in finding their voice and, more importantly, using it to help others and themselves.
