Coram was one of the first donations made by The Foundation and this was part of a three year commitment.
The Thomas Coram Foundation was the first children's charity in the UK, established by Royal Charter in 1739. For nearly three centuries, it has pioneered the creation of a "home from home" for abandoned children, and the integrated provision of education and employment support to enable thousands of young people to find their way in the world.
Today, Coram remains a pioneering, developmental organisation committed to meeting the needs of the most vulnerable, and develops new ways of working that can be reproduced nationally to ensure future generations feel the benefit . Coram works with over 10,000 children and young people and their families per year, helping children born into the worst circumstances who risk suffering terrible loss, giving them the chance of love in a family, a childhood and a future. Our driving aim is to create better chances for children.
