The centre, established in 1987, was the first of its kind. It provides professionally supervised contact for children in both public and private law cases and brings to-gether parents, brothers and sisters who are separated because of care proceedings or breakdowns in family relationships.
Chief executive Gillian Pugh said the centre had made a huge difference to the lives of thousands of children over the past 15 years. "One day in the High Court can cost up to pound;5,000. Coram can provide five years of careful measured work with a family for pound;3,000."
