Connecting Futures is an annual corporate membership programme for organisations wanting to contribute to the futures of children and young people in central London. Your commitment will provide them with safe spaces where they can build meaningful relationships and improve their wellbeing. We’ll work with your team to help young people access new opportunities and build the skills they need to take charge of, and shape a brighter future for themselves.
Your organisation will have the chance to transform young people’s futures by utilising your team’s skills, knowledge and expertise. Your team will also be able to get involved with volunteering and activities across Coram’s Fields, from gardening and painting to helping out at our popular sports and community events.
A membership is a year-round commitment through which you can broadcast your support for your community in partnership with Coram’s Fields.
Become a member in a way to suit you, through either joining our Growth or Investment tier.
For decades, our Youth and Sports Programmes have been providing pioneering support for local young people facing financial and social barriers.
Work with us to help young people who face blank CV’s and underemployment to access work experiences, boosting employment prospects and mental wellbeing.
Our Youth Centre is a safe space, where young people feel at home and can access a range of drop-in activities, targeted programmes and free facilities, including an IT suite, art space and music studio.

We hope to be able to provide an insight into the vast array of opportunities in construction for local young people and help them into employment”
