Coram Story tells the story of Coram, the first children’s charity, as well as that of its pioneering founder Captain Thomas Coram. You can explore Coram’s rich and varied history through the work of the many artists and musicians who have supported us over the years.

We also tell the stories of adults and children who have been in care, enabling us to see the world through their eyes. And here you can find out how Captain Coram set in motion the principle that all children should be respected and protected.
