Chances for Children

Active Derbyshire, Active Notts, Funding, News

Individually tailored grants of up to £2,200 for children and young people who have experienced a crisis that has recently had a significant and enduring impact on their wellbeing and educational engagement are available through Buttle UK.

The programme funds holistic packages of support for children and young people that can include, but are not limited to:

  • Items and activities to support learning and development such as laptops, books, wi-fi, educational toys, tuition, etc.
  • Clothing and school uniforms
  • Social, sporting and leisure activities
  • Family activities
  • Items for children’s or young people’s bedrooms
  • Household items that are not available from other sources and which directly address the children’s needs

The fund only accepts applications from frontline professionals working for a registered charity, housing association or public sector organisation who:

  • are working directly with the children/young person
  • have made a full assessment of the child’s or young person’s needs
  • have carried out at least one home visit (optional for schools and colleges)
