Founded in 1739, Coram is the UK's first children's charity. For 275 years, Coram has been helping to transform the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in our local communities. We give children the chance of a better, brighter future. We're still based on the same historic site. In our earliest years, Coram helped children left abandoned on the streets of London. However, the challenges children face today are far more diverse than when we first established. Now we help children in many different ways – right across the UK. We help children to feel safe and loved; help children to lead healthier lives; support their education and learning; protect their legal rights when these are in danger of being ignored; and strengthen families to help children thrive. Now you can generate free donations for us every time you shop online via TheGivingMachine. Sign up and get started now or browse the huge range of shops that are participating. Please do tell your friends and family how they can help us at no extra cost too.
