The Twelve days of Coram

The Twelve Days of Coram project aims to give a child a gift that lasts a lifetime, a gift that that every child wants, a family. Christmas is the season for giving, and Coram’s goal is to give 12 children a better future, by finding and preparing families, who can provide a stable, loving home.

Coram has been creating better chances for children since 1739, and believes that every child deserves the same opportunities in life. Today we run the largest voluntary adoption agency in the UK, with a 99% success rate at finding children a forever family. Currently there are 64,400 children in care in the UK waiting to be adopted. The challenges children in care face are complex; to name just one issue, almost 33% leave school with no GCSE’s or qualifications and only 6% go to university.


Coram offers substantial pre and post adoption support to families, ensuring that prospective parents are adequately prepared, and that our adoptees have a smooth transition. The lifelong support we offer families through creative therapies and parent training groups, addresses the challenges adoptive families may face and means that the families we place together stay together and thrive. Coram helps the most hard to place children to flourish, and not become another unfortunate statistic.
