Disability Tag Rugby Appeal


Help children and young people with additional needs ‘be a rugby player’.

As Wooden Spoon Ambassadors we’re asking for your help to give children and young people living with disability the chance to be a rugby player by raising £50,000 to support and develop the disability rugby scene across the UK.

The majority of clubs and schools aren’t able to offer children with disabilities the same opportunity as their contemporaries to get involved.

We can give those children the same chance to benefit from the physical, mental wellbeing that sport and rugby provide but also the wider personal and social development of team sport that can help shape their future lives.

Tag Rugby is an accessible inclusive non-contact version of rugby. Your donations will provide grants to schools and clubs to buy specialist tag equipment, access to specialist training for players with disabilities, to train up their own coaches to build capacity to create Tag rugby clubs across the UK, and grants for those who can’t afford boots, kit and travel costs.

The culmination of this will be The Wooden Spoon International Tag Rugby Festival in June 2024. The Tag Festival will bring hundreds of players with additional needs from across the UK and Ireland to come together to truly experience the experience of going on tour.
