Emergency Appeal

Save Coram’s Fields

During this unprecedented time, the closure of Coram’s Fields has left thousands of children unable to access essential green space, with hundreds more missing out on the vital, and often life changing support provided through our services. The current pandemic, is having a devastating effect on our young people, many of whom were already at crisis point – when this is over, our young people will need us more than ever before.

We’re doing everything we can to maintain support to the children, young people and families that need it most. Now, we need your help, to ensure that our park, playground and services survive the current crisis, so we can be there, ready to support our local community, when our doors reopen.

In the first four weeks of closing, we lost 60% of our anticipated income. Over the coming months, and without the support of our local community, further losses will see us face an increasingly uncertain future.

Through our emergency crisis appeal, we’re aiming to raise £50,000 to help ensure that we can be here for London’s children, young people and families. You can help to save Coram’s Fields and transform lives by making a donation today.

Digital lifelines

After the closure of our services, including our Youth and Sports Programmes, Nursery and Out of School Club, our dedicated staff team didn’t miss a beat. They immediately reached out with digital lifelines and one-to-one support for local young people and families, collaborating with local partners, to make sure our community continues to have vital support as they work their way through this global crisis that has no playbook.

In a community which sees half of its children living in poverty and families living in severely overcrowded accommodation, we are trusted and relied upon by thousands of families each year.

Stand up for your local community

You can’t visit us right now, but you can still help to keep our young people safe, secure, engaged, and optimistic about a brighter future. By making a donation, you can help us be here for our children and young people when they need it most.

By donating however much you can afford, you are enabling us to continue to be here for your local community. Helping Coram’s Fields means helping your local community get through these uncertain and frightening times, ensuring they have essential resources and facilities into the future.

About Coram’s Fields

Our park and playground is a vital open green space and safe place for children to run around, discover nature and most importantly, play.

In addition, Coram’s Fields provides dedicated services for children, young people and their families.

Our free Youth Programme delivers open access sessions from our Youth Centre and specialised targeted work for young people most in need. We provide a safe space off the streets and help young people, many of whom are already involved in, or at risk of anti-social behaviour and offending, to build brighter futures. Here, young people can gain qualifications and receive life-changing mentoring, coaching and employment support.

Our free Sports Programme provides completely free sports sessions to local children and young people, from football to fencing, helping to boost their physical and mental health and develop core life skills.

Our Under 5’s Drop-In, open five days a week,  provides a range of activity programmes for children under 5, whilst also acting as a community hub for parents, where they can socialise and develop life-long friendships.

Our Out of School Club and Nursery provide high-quality, affordable childcare for local families, with children benefitting from access to the full seven acres of green space that Coram’s Fields provides.

Help protect Coram’s Fields and support your local community.
