Wooden Spoon

Summary

Funds projects that enhance and support the lives of children and young people (under the age of 25) who are disadvantaged physically, mentally or socially. They want you to work directly with children and young people and have a positive influence on their lives as a result of the activities or service provided. If a project is for a physical, tangible asset of a permanent nature it must have a minimum predicted life span of five years (preferably ten), be non-transferable and of a permanent nature. If a project is educational or disability sports-focused there must be a key rugby element to engage children and young people.
