Wouldn’t it be great if you could help children and young people tackle some of the biggest challenges they face in life? By becoming a Wooden Spoon member – you can do just that.
During the past 35 years, we’ve distributed over £26m to more than 700 projects, helping over one million disabled and disadvantaged children. We fund a range of projects including respite and medical treatment centres, sensory rooms, specialist playgrounds and community based programmes. However, the need for our services continues to grow: 1 in 10 children in the UK and Ireland have a disability and 3.5 million children in the UK are living in poverty. We can currently only fund 1 in 4 of the project requests we receive.
Want to join us and become a member of our team?
From just £5 a month (or from £50 a year) you will receive:
- Regular news, including updates about recent projects, in our magazine Spoonews
- Entry into exclusive member draws, supported by Gullivers Sports Travel, to win rugby tournament tickets
- A free Wooden Spoon gift
- The amazing feeling of knowing that you’re helping change the lives of children and young people across the UK & Ireland
As a member you will also be invited to attend local events and challenges, like rugby festivals, dinners and cycle rides, organised by your local committee who raise money to fund projects near you.
