The difference we make

Coram has been helping vulnerable children since 1739. Today, as we prepare for the 350th anniversary of the birth of our founder, Thomas Coram, we help more than one million children, young people, families and professionals every year.

Coram's vision is that every child has the best possible chance to live a fulfilling life. We support children and young people from their earliest days to independence, creating a change that lasts a lifetime. We help build their confidence; we help them to develop skills; we uphold their rights and we find loving adoptive families for the most vulnerable.

We need your help more than ever.

  • Just £5 per month could pay to run a specialist support group for adopted children
  • £10 a month could help a vulnerable young person get off the streets and away from danger
  • £15 per month could contribute towards the cost of a music therapy session, to help a child overcome their traumatic past
