Buttle UK - Chances for Children

23 September 2020/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Objectives of Fund

The Chances for Children grants scheme aims to improve the social and emotional wellbeing of children and young people and their capacity to engage in education and learning.

Value Notes

Each package of support can be worth up to £2,000.

The average grant is £1,500.

Buttle UK’s grant giving is based on available funding. These funds may become exhausted towards the end of the financial year and this could be nationwide or in certain areas.

Who Can Apply

Support is available for children and young people who are:

  • Under 18 years of age if they live in a household with their family.

  • Up to 20 years if they live independently with little or no support from their family.

  • Working closely with support services.

  • Normally resident in the UK with the intention to remain in the country long term.

With the exception of grants boarding school fees, which can be applied for by parents or cares, all applications must be made by a support worker.

Support workers may be from a statutory agency or voluntary organisation. They may be a health worker, a youth support worker, housing support officer, someone connected to their school or college or someone in a similar role.

Eligible Expenditure

The package of support will particularly focus on the following three key areas of need:

  • Support in accessing education, employment and training.

  • Safe and comfortable accommodation.

  • Maintaining positive emotional and physical wellbeing.

Some of the things that Buttle UK will consider supporting include, but are not limited to, a computer for their studies, travel costs to get to college, equipment to take up a training opportunity or interview clothes.

Part of the package of support can also include funding toward establishing a comfortable home environment and funding to access interests or activities that help promote a young person’s wellbeing. This could include, but again is not limited to, basic furnishings such as a bed, cooker, fridge or pots and pans, and access to positive recreational or social activities, sports or gym membership or counselling.
