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 to new opportunities, create a safe and welcoming green space right on their doorstep, and collectively shape a brighter future.
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 to helping out at our popular sports and community events.
Meet the Members of Connecting Futures, inspirational businesses who have already committed to supporting their local community.
