Coram publishes Digest of Achievements 2017-18
Published: Thursday 21st June 2018
On 19 June 2018 we published our annual Digest of Achievements for 2017-2018, reflecting on the work of the Coram group over the last twelve months. Over the last year we have directly worked with more than 100,000 children, families and professionals, and helped more than one million others through our information and advice.
2017-18 has seen us extend the work we do not only nationally but internationally too, working in 27 countries to help children suffering with separation and loss, emotional difficulties and other complex issues.
To celebrate the 350th anniversary of the birth of our founder Thomas Coram, this year saw us call for all children to be ‘Respected and Protected’, with our new report being launched at the House of Commons. Another key highlight was the development of a national quality mark for early permanence, and this year Coram was also instrumental in 11% of all adoptions.
In the coming year we look forward to opening The Queen Elizabeth II Centre, creating better life chances for children as a national centre of excellence, as well as publishing a book for children on the story of Thomas Coram, the first champion for children.
