In 2012 Dorset Youth Association facilitated the formation of Continuum.

Continuum is a consortium of 15 organisations working with or for children, young people and their families in Dorset.  Members range from national charities to small local organisations.  In 2013 Continuum was recognised by Companies House in 2013 when it became a Company Limited by Guarantee, followed by the Charity Commission in 2015 as a registered charity.

Through Continuum organisations are able to work together to increase the number of tender contracts available to them, and to help with wider briefings of contracts.

Through funding from the Social Investment Business Continuum is firmly in a position to tender for contracts and is taking all opportunities to attract funding.

Organisations wishing to be involved in Continuum will be considered by the Directors on an annual basis.

Any queries can be directed through Dorset Youth Association.
