3rd Horizons are part of a growing number of intermediary organisations helping broker new relationships, ideas and knowledge between communities, the workforce and decision-makers.

We were set up in 2011 and have worked with over thirty organisations in Scotland, England and Ireland. We have four core areas of work which nearly always interplay in the projects we do – Design, Research, Leadership and Policy.

As an organisation, we are guided by our values – we want to do work that is ‘worthwhile, fun and interesting’. Have a look around our site and get a sense of who we are and we do and please do get in touch if you would like to work with us or just have a chat!
