As the largest grant awarding charity in the UK that focuses solely on children and young people in need, Buttle UK hear about children and young people in circumstances that most people are unaware of.
Last year Buttle UK gave out nearly 8,000 grants in England to children, young people and their families.
The majority of those were for emergency essentials, worth around £300, to help a family or young person in a time of crisis. Most commonly they are for white goods, such as a cooker, washing machine or fridge freezer, or for a child’s bed. Many are delivered though a long standing partnership with BBC Children in Need.
