About Us

Wooden Spoon is the children’s charity of rugby. We fund life-changing projects that support children and young people with disabilities or living in disadvantage. Since 1983, we’ve funded more than 1,300 projects, across the UK and Ireland, totalling over £29 million.

Our focus is to help children and young people through projects such as sensory rooms, playground and outdoor activities, health and wellbeing and specialist equipment.

Please take a look at our About Us leaflet.


Through the power of rugby, every child and young person has access to the best life opportunities.


To positively transform the lives of children and young people with disabilities or facing disadvantage through the power of the rugby network and connections.


Our rugby heritage drives our core values of Passion, Integrity,  Teamwork and Fun.
