Charter for Children

Coram presents the Charter for Children as a route map for the coming decade and beyond, calling for a realignment of the social contract between society and children backed by three key principles – a fair share, a secure future and an equal chance.

Children’s lives are significantly better than when Thomas Coram set up this charity in 1739. However, after decades of progress, it is clear that, on a range of metrics, life is no longer getting better for all our children and young people.

It is time for change – for our society to act as the parent it needs to be and ensure a just settlement for all generations. Together we can create better chances for children, now and forever.
