The Faraway Children's Charity
The Faraway Children’s Charity (FCC) – is a registered charity established to, ‘Meet the diverse needs of disadvantaged, vulnerable or at risk children and young people within Northamptonshire and the surrounding areas.’ Since forming in 2008 we have distributed 1000’s of free resources.
The charity is named after one of Enid Blyton’s children’s books: ‘The Faraway Tree’ which tells the story of a group of children who discover a magical tree where they are safe and happy.
We operate based on an innovative low cost – no cost charity model. 100% of donations received by FCC are directly distributed to Northamptonshire children and young people. We are a volunteer led charity. We have a Patron, Rachel Mallows, 5 Trustees and a number of Volunteers who share a commitment to low cost charity administration to ensure maximum benefits for vulnerable children and young people. Ordinarily, our only administrative expenditure is associated with annual insurance cover.
