People’s Postcode Lottery support Buttle UK

Buttle UK have been awarded £100,000 by players of People’s Postcode Lottery through the Postcode Children Trust.

The award was made to Buttle UK because of their proven record in helping children and young people who are in crisis reach their potential, through small but targeted interventions. They make grants direct to families and young people of up to £2,000, which are proven to have a disproportionately positive impact on the lives of children compared to their monetary value.

The funding will go directly to individual families and young people locally across England, Scotland and Wales. The funds will allow the charity to target grants to areas with high levels of need, but where the current level of applications for support are lower than expected. In this way, they aim to reach some of the most vulnerable children in the UK who are receiving little support from other services.  

100% of the award will be used for grants, and go directly to children and young people in need. This is because Buttle UK has an endowment, created by the legacy left to us by our founder, Frank Buttle. This allows them to fund our own administration costs, and so all other funds can go to those that need them most. Overall, the support from players of People’s Postcode Lottery will fund grants for over 200 children over the course of the next year.  

Buttle UK CEO, Joseph Howes, stated: “We are delighted to be supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.  We look forward to being able to tell the stories of how this funding has really helped struggling families in communities across the UK. This award means that as many as 200 children will be given a chance for change in their lives.”​
