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.

About the role

We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated professional who is passionate about amplifying the voices of young people through participation and co-production.

Voices in Action is a dynamic area of work within Coram that ensures the engagement of children and young people (as young campaigners).  Our Young Campaigners, aged 10-25,  bring their lived experiences of school exclusion, homelessness, immigration issues, involvement in the care system and involvement in the criminal justice system to improve outcomes for other young people.  They achieve this through campaigning and policy work, shining a light on problems and developing ideas to make things better nationally, locally and improving the work we do.

 

This post plays a crucial role in enabling this to happen. Using a co-production approach, this post will bring young people’s voices to the forefront through the production of campaigns and resources for other young people and professionals.
