Coney are a registered charity (no. 1156864). We make play anywhere people gather, wherever it will have most impact.
Especially in these testing times, any donations help us keep running: making and sharing play to spark change for people wherever and whenever they are, making play with the Young Coneys and other young people and families, and supporting our wider family of freelance artists.
Generating new partnerships is how our work grows. And when it grows, we can impact more people. In addition to our Arts Council investment, we need to raise over £150,000 each year. This supports our work with communities, children and young people, and innovation for extreme social impact.
Your support makes an incredible difference to our work, enabling us to continue working in new and meaningful ways with communities, and embark on new adventures. If you’d like to donate to Coney, you can make a one-off donation below, or join our Friends scheme.
