Coram is a progressive children’s charity which draws upon a distinguished history and reputation for creating better chances for children. Founded in 1739 with the help of a Royal Charter, Thomas Coram opened the Foundling Hospital as London’s first home for babies whose mothers were unable to care for them. Today the Coram charity is comprised of 300 staff, headquartered near King’s Cross and on the same historic grounds as the original Foundling Hospital.
In December 2018, Coram opened the Queen Elizabeth II Centre, which houses the Rangoonwala Conference and Learning Centre. This space provides modern and flexible training facilities for internal and external meetings, trainings, and conferences. Proceeds from meetings hosted at Coram directly contribute to Coram’s charitable mission of supporting the UK’s most vulnerable children, young people and families.
