No child should be invisible
2018 marks the birth, 350 years ago, of Thomas Coram, England’s first campaigner for children.
This was a man who could not, and would not, stand by while abandoned children and babies perished on London’s filthy streets. For 17 years he fought doggedly to give them the protection and care they needed, lobbying society’s most powerful and influential members, until, finally, he was granted a royal charter to establish the first dedicated safe haven for them.
Today, Coram is proud to continue his vital work and to address the inequality and deprivation that continues to blight young lives. We fight for children’s rights. We find them permanent loving homes, we promote their voices, and we will not rest until every child is respected and protected.
Every child should be respected and protected.
