Our Members

Meet the Members of Connecting Futures, inspirational businesses who have already committed to supporting their local community.

“Coram’s Fields has been the firm’s chosen charity since 2016 and we have since expanded our partnership to include a mentoring role in the Youth Employability Scheme which has proven to be incredibly popular with mentors and mentees alike. Like Payne Hicks Beach, Coram’s Fields has a rich, interesting and long standing central London history and shares our organisations’ core values to invoke passion, promote interest in good causes and provide emotional and practical support in times of need.”

Emily Foy, Senior Associate, Payne Hicks Beach

“Deckers supports charities that focus on education, youth, environmental issues and conservation, and believe that this aligns closely with the wonderful benefits that Coram’s Fields charity and playground provide. We were also looking to partner with an organisation located close to our central London European headquarters, which enables our employees to volunteer at Coram’s Fields. Deckers is honoured and proud to support the fantastic works undertaken by the Coram’s Fields team.”

Alex Henderson, Director, Deckers Europe Limited

“At Middle Eight we believe in supporting the local community, with a specific focus on youth unemployment and social isolation.
