The Wooden Spoon Society

What is Wooden Spoon?

Wooden Spoon is a children's charity founded in 1983. It is dedicated to helping disadvantaged children and young people across the British Isles live happier, richer lives.

The charity partners with local rugby communities across the British Isles, receiving invaluable support for our activities and the opportunity to raise awareness of the work we do. In doing so, we involve some of rugby's top sporting role models in making a difference in the lives of young people in need.

Wooden Spoon comprises over 40 regional volunteer committees, a central national team and over 10,000 members. The regional committees undertake many local fundraising activities and only spend the money raised on projects in their local community.


What does Wooden Spoon do?

Wooden Spoon believes that all children and young people deserve the chance to live happy fulfilled lives regardless of the challenges they may face.

Wooden Spoon organises fundraising initiatives, raises the money and spends it where it is most needed. Over the years, its donations have diversified from capital projects such as medical treatment and recovery centres, sports and activity areas, sensory rooms and gardens, playgrounds and hydrotherapy pools to include outreach programmes for young people in their communities.

In partnership with the global rugby fraternity Wooden Spoon harnesses the spirit and values of rugby to give disadvantaged children and young people a chance to achieve their full potential in life.
