Coney makes play anywhere people gather, wherever it will impact the most.

In addition to our arts council investment Coney needs to raise over £150,000 each year for our work with communities, children and young people and innovation for extreme social impact.

We’ve been a charity since April 2014 (charity number 1156864) and generating new partnerships, and making new friends is how our work grows. When it grows, it means we can impact more people.

Our diverse portfolio of projects invite people to play in different ways. We work with groups ranging from ages 5 to 82 years, reaching them wherever they happen to be, to reunite a community spirit through games and play together.

Currently, thanks to match funding from Arts Council England through their Catalyst: Evolve programme, every donation Coney receives is doubled – so we can do twice as much with whatever you choose to give.
