Modern Slavery Statement

The Foster Care Charity (FCC) is a not for profit Fostering Agency, which strives to make a difference to vulnerable children’s lives. We provide fostering placements for vulnerable children and employ around 40 staff. As an organisation, we are subject to statutory regulation with compliance measured and audited by Ofsted (England). The Company currently operates across England, in the United Kingdom.
The Foster Care Charity is committed to ensuring the organisation and its supply chains are free of slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking. We are committed to implementing policies that aim to preclude this within our organisation and actively encourage a culture that allows staff and external parties to ‘speak up’ if necessary.
In accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015, FCC continually makes steps to ensure Modern Slavery and human trafficking do not take place in any part of its own business or any of its supply chains. All staff are encouraged to be alert to risks, regardless of the size of those risks.
FCC recruits to the highest standard, following clear and ethical recruitment and compliance processes. If external agencies are used, they must adhere to The Foster Care Charity’s high standards.
FCC is an ethically driven organisation, part of which includes diligence in assessing Modern Slavery and human trafficking in its operations and supply chains. The Company undertakes due diligence when considering new suppliers and regularly reviews its existing suppliers. Our due diligence process includes building long-standing relationships with suppliers and ensuring expectations are clear.
We will continue to enhance internal policies and procedures to help us identify, prevent, and mitigate any risks of Modern Slavery or human trafficking in relation to our own operations and external suppliers regardless of whether they are existing or new.
