IPF Support

We are here to give support and information to rugby players who have sustained a catastrophic spinal cord or traumatic brain injury which has resulted in permanent disability whilst playing rugby in England at any level and any age. Our support is available to help players through recovery, rehabilitation and for the rest of their lives.

We will support in any way that is possible and necessary, either financially, by supporting family, friends and club or by providing professional recommendations and advice on other methods of support outside our charity.
