The Faraway Childrens Charity

A UK charity for UK children! Established to meet the diverse needs of disadvantaged, vulnerable or at risk children and young people within the county of Northamptonshire and surrounding areas.

Founded 2009

  • Mission statement

    FCC was stablished by professionals in 2009 in Northamptonshire having identified
    within their working practice that a large number of local children & young people did not have access to basic necessities including food, clothing, hygiene & health resources as well as fundamental nurturing & guidance from their parent/s or carers & a clear need for a safe, creative & homely space for disadvantaged, vulnerable or at risk children & young people.

    Initial Short term provision objectives for the charity are:
    Produce a range of sustainable resource packs to distribute to needy children and young people
    Develop a bank of sustainable gifts to distribute to children & young people at Christmas & Easter
    Initial Medium term provision objectives for the charity are:
    Planning for a Christmas Party 2012 for children & young people whose parents & carers do not recognise or celebrate Christmas
    Development of a pilot service to provide children & young people with a safe positive space to receive a range of provision including: food, resources, creative opportunities, informal & social education
    Development of a mobile service to distribute food to children & young people.
    Development of an appropriate service to challenge & support parents & carers to improve their family skills & care of their children
    The long term aim of the charity is to establish a Safe House to provide a safe & comfortable space for children & young people hiding from abuse.
