No Place Like Home: The Story of the Foundling Hospital

Thomas Coram Foundation for Children

Coram is the first and longest continuing children’s charity. We champion children’s rights and wellbeing, making lives better through legal support, advocacy, adoption and our range of therapeutic, educational and cultural programmes. We understand what works for children and young people, and we use that insight and experience to engage with government, local authorities, social workers, teachers, carers and families – all those in a position to make a difference - to help deliver better practice, systems and laws.
Established as the Foundling Hospital in 1739, today we are a vibrant charity group of specialist organisations, supporting hundreds of thousands of children, young people and families every year.

Help us to create better chances for children, now and forever.
