Coram’s Fields is the capital’s most unique children and young people’s charity. Established in 1936 as a safe haven for play on the site of the former Foundling Hospital and located in south Camden, the support we provide for children and local families is delivered through two main mechanisms: the delivery of services and the provision of seven acres of open space. Our services comprise: an under 5’s drop in; a nursery, an out of school club, and youth and sports programmes.
Across our site, we provide an array of engaging, recreational and educational resources, which delight thousands of children, young people, and their families. At Coram’s Fields you will find: a park and playground, a small city farm, a wildlife garden and over two acres of sports pitches and courts. We estimate approximately 150,000 visitors walk through our gates every year.
As our local community has evolved over the last eight decades, we have continued to evolve with it, responding in a way that is able to meet the changing needs of the young people that we serve. Our services deliver support to children and young people across all ages - from first steps through to first jobs - with a natural progression between one service to the next, ensuring that at whichever stage of development a young person is, they will be able to find support at Coram’s Fields.
Our aim is to be the go-to place for children and young people, widely known for the outstanding quality of our facilities and services, the diversity of our programmes and our responsiveness in meeting the needs of young people.
