Coram Family and Child Care focus on childcare and the early years to make a difference to families’ lives now and in the long term. They work to make sure that every child has access to high quality childcare and every parent is better off working once they have paid for childcare. Families who face disadvantage, social exclusion and poverty are at the heart of our work.
They designed and delivered the first Young Dads Collective model, which works to improve the lives of young dads and their children by tackling the social exclusion that holds back their parenting skills and means. As experts by experience, the YDC’s young dads work with professionals to transform how organisations engage with young dads and overcome the hidden barriers that shut young dads out. The YDC directly employs and develops the skills of the collective’s young dads.
