Support & Protect the Rugby Family
We are the RFU Injured Players Foundation; an official charity of England Rugby.
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 can also provide family members, clubs and team mates with the information and support they need following such incidents, particularly in relation to how they can help the player with their recovery or adjustment to a new life.
As part of our work we also fund research into how such injuries can be prevented, and work with the Rugby Football Union to reduce injury risk across the game.
