Life Education Centres were set up in 1979 in Australia by two progressive Christian Ministers who considered drug use to be the most contagious disease affecting young people across the world, for which the solution was early education, building resilience and self-esteem. Following a visit by HRH The Prince of Wales, Life Education came to the UK in 1986, with extensive support, to this day, from the Rotarian movement. In 2009 Life Education amalgamated with Coram and there are now 60 mobile classrooms and 70 Educators across England and Scotland. Coram Life Education is funded directly by schools, the Rotarian Movement, corporate support and donations. Life Education continues to operate across Australia and New Zealand, Hong Kong, the US, Finland, Cyprus, and Barbados.
