Development of ‘community cohesion’ so people can function & thrive together
Personal development, confidence building, assertiveness & dealing with negative emotions.
We facilitate workshops, meetings, community events, conferences & strategic planning.

We have a particular interest in working with, and in the interests of, individuals, organisations and communities who face barriers to participation.
This may be in respect of access to education, training, employment or which otherwise impede them from taking a full part in the social, cultural or economic life of their local community.


What We Do

CONTINUUM was established to provide customised support to the voluntary & community sector (VCS) and to the public sector for public benefit, with particular focus on ’hard to reach’ groups and communities.  This includes (but is not restricted to) groups representing or working with: – older people, mixed culture communities, people who have mental ill- health, women and LGBTQ.

We are particularly interested in developing ‘community cohesion’ so commuities can function and grow in harmony. We aim to help communities become places where people feel confident, belonging and comfortable mixing with people from different ethnic backgrounds or faith. We ecourage and deliver on cultural competence so people have a basic understanding of their own culture and a willingness to learn about other cultural practices

Research or consultation exercises to develop policies and strategies can be difficult and time consuming.  Our wide range of VCS contacts provides us with a route to the different sections of the community with whom you may wish to engage.  Once connected we facilitate conversations which secure participation and using appropriate methods and language allow us to gather local views and suggestions.

We facilitate workshops, meetings, community events and conferences for example with Engage Britain and our Partner Organisations. We have grass roots experience of working in and with the public and voluntary & community sectors at operational and strategic levels, giving us a plethora of skill in project and programme development, management and delivery.
