Children and young people's stories
The stories of young people in care and from care are not heard as often as they should be.
At Coram, however, we take a child-centred approach. We believe that the children and young people we work with are experts on their own experience.
What they tell us is at the heart of everything we do.
Listening to their stories helps us in our mission to develop, deliver and promote best practice in the care of children and young people, and to build resilience so that they can take responsibility for their lives and fulfil their potential.
In this section, discover the stories of:
- young people with recent experience of the care system together with those who were in the care of the Foundling Hospital some 60 years ago
- budding writers with experience of care who have entered our annual Voices writing competition
- children adopted through Coram, making happy ever afters possible
- young people who have been adopted and want to help others cope with the challenges of being adopted
