We’re thrilled to be able to allocate our charitable fund to The Spark Foundation, a charity that offers grants to children in care and care leavers.
We wanted to choose a charity that not only aligned with our values, ethics and approaches, but would also enable us to help care-experienced children on a national scale.
The Spark Foundation aims to give young people in care and care leavers the same chances as everyone else. They do this by providing one-off grants, giving young people a helping hand when they most need it.
Sam Ram, FCC’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “The Spark Foundation are offering a lifeline to young care leavers who may not have any one else to turn to. We know what a huge, and in some cases life-changing, difference these grants make to the lives of young care leavers. It is with great pleasure that we are able to assist the foundation in their excellent work.”
