What We Do

The work of the IPF can be split into two areas: SUPPORT and PROTECTION

 

SUPPORT

We provide immediate and lifelong support for all rugby union players, both amateur and professional, who sustain a catastrophic spinal cord or traumatic brain injury, to empower them to live a full and independent life.

We also offer help to individuals who, while playing rugby, sustain injuries not classed as a catastrophic spinal cord or traumatic brain injury, by providing information and, where possible, by relieving financial hardship.

 

PROTECTION

We fund and inform training of rugby coaches, players, referees and volunteers to protect players from catastrophic injury.
