Coram Life Education

Coram Life Education (CLE) is the UK's leading drug and health education programme in schools.

Every year, CLE and its delivery partners reach 840,000* children aged three to 16. By teaching them about diet, exercise and how to manage risks as they grow up, we help them make healthier choices and take responsibility for their own lives.

How CLE works

We make learning fun and memorable, capturing children's imaginations through fun, age-specific activities.

Using stimulating and interactive techniques, such as puppetry and role play, we teach children about cause and effect in relation to issues they may face, including:

  • Healthy eating,
  • Drugs and alcohol,
  • Forming positive friendships,
  • Developing a sense of self-worth.

Specially trained educators deliver this programme to schools across the country in a fleet of mobile classrooms.

Parents and teachers

Because of the critical role parents and teachers play in protecting children from risky situations, we also work with teachers, parents and local communities, offering support and advice on subjects that can be difficult to address.
