Future Care Capital

We are a charity, emerging from the sale of the awarding organisation, the Council for Awards in Care, Health and Education (CACHE), in September 2015. Beginning life as the National Nursery Examination Board (NNEB) in 1945, then, operating as the Foundation for Training and Education in Care (FTEC), our charity has evolved throughout its 70-year history but we continue to focus upon transformational work in the health and care arena. Her Majesty The Queen is our Patron.

Following the sale of our awarding organisation business and assets, we are now embarking upon the next phase of our development. Our evidence-based research will be used to advocate new policy ideas and inject fresh thinking into health and care across England. We will use a crowdsourcing platform to engage people in the design, delivery and evaluation of future service provision. Our aim is to stimulate a national debate and nurture ‘collective intelligence’, in keeping with our mission and commitment to operate as an organisation which ‘thinks’, ‘does’ and ‘learns’.

Alongside our policy and advocacy work, we will invite partners to work with us to pilot new solutions and support innovative ventures in the course of delivering our charitable mission. Specifically, we will act as a specialist seed funder and invest our own resources through an Innovation Fund.

One of our core priorities is to help early-stage ventures, with the potential for significant impact, to grow in the health and care sectors. The Innovation Fund will also seek to invest in ventures that enhance the quality and value of existing services, as well as others that are capable of driving better education, training, public awareness and engagement in health and care. We believe that focused social investment in this area can, if targeted effectively, work across traditional boundaries to deliver improved health and care outcomes for beneficiaries.

To support the development of a new vision for health and care in England as well as positive change in practical settings, we recognise that a great many challenges lie ahead, but we hope that you will join us for the journey.
