Help children who are being left behind Donate Over 200,000 children will start secondary school unable to adequately read or write. Due to the pandemic, more and more children have fallen behind, they urgently need your help. By donating to Coram you can provide them with one-to-one support with a trained Coram Beanstalk reading helper to ensure they do not get left behind. ‘Reading is more important than any other thing' Jacob found confidence and joy in reading thanks to his Coram Beanstalk volunteer. Thank you for providing love and opportunity to children who otherwise would face lifelong disadvantages from falling behind at age 11. Your support can help us repair the damage to children’s futures and prevent thousands more children from falling behind.
