Use your spare time to make a difference and support our injured players at our events and through our work. You can make a real difference as part of the team!

The Injured Players Foundation simply could not do everything we do without our amazing volunteers. As with rugby in general, volunteers are the lifeblood of our organisation and make an enormous difference to our work.

Volunteering isn’t just about giving back, it also offers you the opportunity to learn and build on skills and experience, to get out and meet new people, and to get involved in a variety of events and initiatives across the country in support of the #RugbyFamily.


There are many opportunities to join the Injured Players Foundation and support us as a volunteer, such as:

  • Supporting our fundraisers at events across England
  • Raising awareness in your local area and club about the work of the Injured Players Foundation

To discover more about volunteering with the Injured Players Foundation or to let us know you want to get involved, get in touch with the team, we’d love to hear from you!
