Capital grants supporting disabled children

28 March, 2023

Schools and not for profit organisations have the opportunity to apply for funding through the Wooden Spoon Society's Capital Grants programme. Wooden Spoon is the British and Irish Rugby charity which supports projects help mentally, physically disadvantaged children. Each year the charity supports around 70 projects.

Funding is available for:

  • Buildings and extensions
  • Equipment and activity aids
  • Sensory rooms and gardens
  • Playgrounds and sports areas
  • Soft playrooms.

The funding available is for capital items only and will not support revenue costs. There is no maximum grant limit but projects under £5,000 are unlikely to be considered. Wooden Spoon’s contribution may be up to 100% of the cost, though beneficiary organisations will be encouraged, where practicable, to raise a proportion themselves.

If a project is educational or disability sports-focused, there must be a key rugby element to engage children and young people.

Applications can be submitted at any time.
