Grants of up to £2,000 are available to support the needs of vulnerable children and young people who have experienced a recent crisis or change in life that has had a significant impact on their social and emotional wellbeing and their education.
The funding is being made available through the Buttle UK’s Chances for Children Grants. Support might include items and activities to support learning and development such as laptops, books, wi-fi, educational toys, tuition, etc; clothing and school uniforms; and social, sporting and leisure activities; and items for children/young people’s bedrooms.
Buttle UK will only accept applications from frontline professionals (from a registered charity, housing association or public sector organisation):
- who are working directly with the children/young person
- ideally, have carried out at least one home visit
- and have made a full assessment of the children’s or young person’s needs
Applications can be made at any time. Visit: https://buttleuk.org/apply-for-a-grant/chances-for-children-grants/ for more information.
