Wooden Spoon Society

Charity description

Wooden Spoon Society logo
Wooden Spoon is the children’s charity of rugby, funding life-changing projects across the UK and Ireland to support children and young people with disabilities or facing disadvantage.

We fund a range of projects, which are not just rugby focused, including respite and medical treatment centres, sensory rooms, specialist playgrounds and community-based programmes.

In the last year more than 150,000 children have been supported through Wooden Spoon projects worth over £1m. However, research shows that 1 in 10 children in the UK and Ireland have a disability and there are 3.5 million children in the UK living in poverty. These numbers continue to rise and more and more children need our help.

Our vision is that through the power of rugby, every child and young person, no matter what their background has access to the same opportunities.

By getting involved, together we can change children’s lives through the power of rugby.
