This year’s annual report reflects an exciting and fast-paced time for the organisation, seeing Future Care Capital (FCC) move from a start-up into a newly established national health and social care charity.
A new settlement for the health and care provision is one of the most important domestic policy challenges in recent decades. FCC is at the heart of the debate, delivering a new, clear vision for health and care that meets the growing demand within the country.
FCC focused much of the year building its policy and advocacy team, so that the charity could start putting forward practical policy solutions to address some of the biggest challenges faced by our ageing population. Several of the charity’s policy recommendations focused around health and care data that have captured the interest of the wider sector and Whitehall.
More progress was also made to establish FCC’s Innovation Fund, the charity’s second core collaborative, but independent, delivery vehicle. The fund will be an opportunity to lead the sector in funding new health and care innovation and to address a gap in the market for non-clinical health and care ventures at seed funding stage. It will aim to support the development of such innovation to scale up investments with a goal of significant societal impact.
