“I feel so lucky to be in a position as an Art Therapist working with children and young people who have experienced adversity, I provide a safe place where children can explore and communicate their feelings and emotions using art – supporting them to work through their difficulties to reach their full potential.
When a child says to me “I feel supported”, “I feel listened to” or “I know how to ask for help now”, I feel such a personal sense of satisfaction.
I love working in Coram because Coram and children go hand in hand. I know I will get the support and encouragement to help as many children as I can and I know my skills and knowledge are valued." - Edward
“Working at Coram is like being part of a large family. The ethos of the organisation is to provide better chances for children and that begins with having a stable home and a family. I have always felt that sense of “belonging” whilst at Coram and have wanted to work towards the organisation growing and improving its outcomes.” - David
“Who wouldn’t love getting to call the oldest children’s charity in the UK their workplace? I am part of the fundraising team, which has a diverse set of individuals, all bringing different skills, ideas and attributes to the table. Fundraising filters into all departments – so although we do have our individual teams, we are all part of the bigger picture: creating better chances for children.” - Michael
“ I feel really privileged to work for the Coram Adoption social work team. My colleagues are all really professional and very skilled at the job. The team is incredibly supportive on every level.” - Shelly
