Coram is a UK children’s charity that has been supporting children for almost 300 years. The Coram Group has a vision that all children should have the best possible start in life. Our mission is to develop, deliver and promote best practice in the support of children and young people. We achieve this by direct delivery of children’s services including adoption, by promoting access to justice, by helping children to make healthy choices, by advocacy for children dependent upon state support, by advancing national systems, practice development and membership services, and by informing public policy and understanding.

Coram’s Impact and Evaluation team has a proven track record of evaluation, research and practice improvement work in children’s social care, local government and more recently on marginalised groups within education. We are a Department for Education (DfE) approved evaluator for the Children’s Social Care Innovation Programme.
