About Coram

Coram is committed to improving the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children and young people.

We support children and young people from birth to independence, creating a change that lasts a lifetime.

Coram is the UK’s oldest children’s charity founded by Thomas Coram in London helping vulnerable children and young people since 1739. Today, the Coram group helps more than one million children, young people, families and professionals every year by providing access to the skills and opportunities they need to thrive. It has a long tradition of developing innovative services to benefit children who cannot live at home.

About Coram-i

Coram-i provides improvement services primarily to children’s social care services such as adoption and fostering to improve outcomes for children in care and is contracted by the DfE to provide a management and secretariat service for the Adoption and Special Guardianship Leadership Board (ASGLB) which includes a data collection.

The ASGLB data return is completed by every local authority, regional adoption agency and voluntary adoption agency in England on a quarterly basis. The primary aim of the collection is to collect information about children and (prospective) adopters in the adoption process and data on SGOs to enable decision-making at national, regional and local level to be evidence-based and informed by strong intelligence, and for agencies and regional boards to have the information they need to improve performance.
