Madeleine Allen

Anne EverestMadeleine runs a Leadership Training Consultancy, teaching communication skills to organisations across Scotland and the North East. She developed an interest in Coram after discovering that a family member was brought up at The Foundling Hospital. After researching the history of Coram she became a voluntary ambassador both for The Foundling Museum and for Coram (the modern-day children’s charity which continues Captain Coram’s legacy). She is also a member of the Old Coram Association which preserves the history of the children brought up at The Foundling Hospitaland has been fortunate enough to collect reminiscences from some of the few surviving foundlings.
Madeleine regularly presents talks to interested groups about the history of Captain Coram, the role of music and the arts in the creation of The Foundling Hospital, and the personal stories of the foundlings themselves.
