The FCC Charitable Trust has been registered with the Charity Commission. Grants are available by applying to our Executive Director, Ian Brazier. The trustees of the trust may make grants that: a. Advance the education of young people who are being or have been fostered by the Foster Care Co-operative, their carers and immediate family and FCC staff. b. Relieve the financial hardship of Young People when moving from FCC foster care into independence and in order to sustain independent living. c. Satisfy a charitable need for a grant or loan amongst young people who are being or have been fostered by the FCC, their carers and immediate family or FCC staff. No grants or loans may be made until after all relevant and appropriate sources of statutory funding have been explored.
