The charity began life as the National Nursery Examination Board (NNEB), established by the Ministry of Health in 1945. The NNEB merged with the Council for Early Years Awards in 1994 to form the Council for Awards in Care, Health and Education, otherwise known as CACHE.  After the sale of CACHE in September 2015 the charity changed its name to the Foundation for Training and Education in Care (FTEC) whilst trustees agreed on a new strategic direction.  Following the discussions and the recruitment of new trustees, Future Care Capital was established in February 2016, with Her Majesty the Queen as Royal Patron.

Current Activity

Future Care Capital is now embarking upon a new phase of development using evidence-based research, to advance ideas that will help shape future health and social care policy to deliver better outcomes for society. The charity aims to stimulate a national debate around health and social care provision through events, campaigns and crowdsourcing.  FCC also has a keen interest in how technology can transform health and social care outcomes, which will be a focus of its policy activities and wider partnership work.

Alongside policy and advocacy work, FCC aims to support innovative ventures, acting as a specialist start-up funder and investor through its separate Innovation Fund.  The Fund seeks to invest in ventures that address major healthcare needs, such as mental health, ageing and chronic medical conditions. FCC believes that focused social investment in this area can, if targeted effectively, work across traditional boundaries to deliver improved health and social care outcomes.
