FUNDING: Wooden Spoon – no deadline

Wooden Spoon is the children’s charity of rugby and funds projects that enhance and support the lives of children and young people (under 25) that are disadvantaged physically, mentally or socially.

If your organisation is in the UK or Ireland and has a project that works directly with children and young people, it may be eligible for a grant.

Funding is usually for £5,000 or more and can be for physical assets or educational or disability sports focused projects. For the latter, there must be a rugby element and grants will be considered for kit and equipment, salaries and administration costs.

In the current situation, as much of their fundraising has been put on hold and therefore available funding has been reduced, you are advised to complete their online expression of wish form for an initial assessment.
