Buttle UK: Funding for Estranged Young People
The challenges facing disadvantaged young people in the UK today are enormous, especially for those aged 16+. Cuts to government funding for services, reduced access to support and the squeezed economic climate have all taken their toll.
These challenges are particularly daunting for young people who receive no support from parents or guardians. Buttle UK refer to them as being ‘estranged’.
Buttle UK can help address the needs of these young people by providing funding to enable them to fully access and participate in education, employment or training opportunities. They also help settle them in secure accommodation by contributing to setting up home costs. Through this funding, a more personalised package of support is created in collaboration with the young person and their support worker. This project offers an ‘enhanced’ level of grant award, with a maximum allocation of £2,000 per case.
This package of support will particularly focus on three key areas of need:
- Support in accessing education, employment and training.
- Safe and comfortable accommodation.
- Maintaining positive emotional and physical wellbeing.
