Description

Buttle UK is named after Reverend Frank Buttle, a remarkable man whose hard work and personal sacrifice helped to establish our grant programmes, which have been helping children and young people in need across the UK since 1953.

Buttle UK launched its Chances for Children Campaign in April 2016.

The last four years have seen the creation of Chances for Children grants, an innovation in the way Buttle UK delivers its grant-giving.

These grants, averaging £1,500 in value, are designed to meet the multiple needs of vulnerable children and young people by funding a holistic package of support. They meet immediate physical needs by paying for household items, such as a cooker or children’s beds, and also meet a child’s longer-term educational and emotional needs, providing things such as course materials and after school activities.
