During the current health crisis Buttle UK is still fully operational, and committed to maintaining the distribution of our Chances for Children grants as closely to normal as possible.
Our Chances for Children grants are, as always, targeted at improving the social and emotional wellbeing of children and young people and their capacity to engage in education and learning. However, they will be tailored to meet current and changing needs as the immediate, and longer-term, impact of the crisis becomes clear.
We award grants of up to £2,000 to support vulnerable children and young people living in poverty and experiencing a crisis, to engage with education and learning and improve their social and emotional development.
All applications must come via a support worker, who has registered on our site. We do not accept applications to Chances for Children from families.
Due to restrictions placed by COVID-19, Buttle UK will not currently provide funding for leisure activities, family days out or anything that involves being out in the community.
For the duration of these restrictions our support will focus on:
Maintaining educational activity and stimulus within the home environment
Establishing and or maintaining internet access and electronic communications
