Buttle UK provides financial help to young people who receive no support from their parents or guardians so that they can further their education or employment. To apply the young person must have a clear education, training or employment goal that they are pursuing or intend to pursue within three months of submitting their application. Direct financial support to meet this goal is provided along with funding to help set up home and/or to improve their emotional, mental or physical wellbeing.
To be considered for support, the young person must be:
- Age 16-20
- Estranged or orphaned and living outside the family home, receiving little or no financial or emotional support from family members
- In financial hardship
- Committed to pursuing a defined goal in relation to education, training or employment. This criteria may be waived if the young person has been a victim of domestic violence and lives or lived in London.
- Working closely with support services
- Normally resident in the UK with the intention to remain in the country long term
- Applicants must have ensured that every effort has been made to check that a statutory, education or governmental body cannot fund the activity or item being requested.
Grants of up to £2,000 may be awarded. Funds could be used to purchase, a computer for studies, travel costs to get to college, equipment to take up a training opportunity, gym membership or interview clothes, for example.
