Lorraine’s Story

My early days were quite rocky...

Then came the moment that changed my life forever.

The moment that I believe saved me from myself, and a steady decline into things that I would not like to imagine. I sat an exam for a secondary school in Devon as my mother had heard there was a charity that gave out grants for children like me, for families like mine. That charity was Buttle UK.

I passed the exam and Buttle UK helped put together a package of support to enable me to attend the school. For the first time in my life I had structure, a network of support, people that believed in me and I was given the lifeline of a great education.

Buttle UK can transform lives by providing a lifeline when there is nowhere else to turn. However hard things may seem, things really can and do get better.
