Buttle UK

Do you remember a time in your life when somebody really helped you?

When a small intervention made a big impact on your life?

This is what we do at Buttle UK. 

Frank Buttle witnessed the suffering of many children during his lifetime. He wanted to give them a better future. 

Over 60 years later, this is what we still do.

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. 

An economic impact assessment of Buttle UK’s Chances for Children grants found a benefit-to-cost ratio of approximately 6:1 - meaning for every £1 spent on these grants, over £6 of public expenditure savings and additional public revenues could be achieved. 

Buttle UK launched its Chances for Children Campaign in April 2016, with a goal to raise an additional £10m in five years. The Campaign has recently reached £3m.
