Players, Family, Friends and Clubs

We are here to give support and information to rugby players who have suffered a catastrophic spinal cord or traumatic brain injury which has resulted in permanent disability whilst playing rugby in England at any level and at any age.

Our support is available to help players through recovery, rehabilitation, and for the rest of their life, in addition to providing their family members, friends, coaches, and clubs with the information they need after having experienced a catastrophic rugby injury.

Our information, advice, guidance and non-catastrophic injury resources are also available to rugby players who have experienced a serious injury not classed as a catastrophic spinal cord or traumatic brain injury, or who have made a full recovery after a catastrophic injury.
