Boarding places

For over 50 years Buttle UK have been supporting vulnerable children to attend boarding school.

For over 50 years Buttle UK has funded boarding school places for vulnerable children.  Some families face serious issues, where parents or carers are struggling to cope and which mean that the child may be at risk of going into care. We believe strongly that boarding can offer an environment where some of these children can flourish. To read more about our eligibility criteria for our boarding grants click here.
