Small Grants Programme
Our Small Grants provide a personal and fast response to families living in crisis, when there is no one else that can help. By paying for basic items such as a cooker, fridge or bed, our grants offer relief from a critical situation. We are proud to also distribute grants through the BBC Children In Need Emergency Essentials Programme.
We work with over 5000 voluntary sector or local authority partners across the UK, which enables us to provide far-reaching support for those most in need. These agencies make applications for children and young people experiencing a wide range of issues such as illness, disabilities, behavioural and psychological problems. Other social issues surrounding their family life may include abuse, neglect, domestic violence, homelessness, drug and alcohol dependency and living in severe poverty.
It is important you read the two documents below before submitting an application. They will ensure that your client, and the support they require, meet our criteria.
Harry and Dan's Story
Harry and Dan live with their older sister Lilly and mum in a new house. They had to leave their old house quickly because their dad was violent and abused their mum. They are all happier now they are away from the old house but they fled with only the clothes they were wearing and very little money. Dan and Harry had to sleep on airbeds, but the beds deflated over night and they weren't getting much sleep. Buttle UK bought Harry and Dan two new beds.
