What we do
The London Irish Foundation uses the power of sport, rugby in particular, to make a lasting, positive impact on the lives of people, both young and old, and to build a meaningful and sustainable legacy for sport and education across our communities.
Our key work strands are rugby development, education, community engagement and inclusion, all of which are underpinned by our core values – family, home from home, and open to all with rugby at the heart.
The Foundation’s team of people are specifically chosen for their expertise, insight, desire and strong passion to help build brighter futures through the projects they deliver.

Our impact in numbers
I wanted to let you know we had very positive feedback from the students after Tuesday's session with Theo.
One of our very challenging students comment was “I feel so much better than I did this morning Miss after doing rugby.

I just wanted to drop you a line and say thank you once again for including us in your coaching scheme. I have been so impressed with the level of progress that our pupils have made over the past few weeks. Ben has been absolutely brilliant. He is totally on our pupils wavelength and has challenged and supported them in equal measure over the past few weeks. It is great to see the way he encourages and motivates the young people and he has already developed good relationships with many of the pupils he has been coaching at our school. Please pass on my thanks to him for all his efforts so far.

Honestly, Ben was fab and the girls loved his session. He was really suited to the event. Feedback from schools on the day has been nothing but positive.

I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for the sports sessions that my students had with London Irish Foundation. They really enjoyed the experience of trying different games and being part of a team. Laurisa was great with the students, motivating them to join in, try their best and have fun, which they did! Every single student gave me a very positive feedback about the sessions, how it impacted them and how good they felt afterwards – so well done!

I feel the pupils have had a positive attitude towards the sport. For most pupils it would have been the first time they have touched a rugby ball. I feel it has been a big success at Meadow High school. The pupils were able to access the sport as the coaching was specific to meet the pupils needs. Laurisa had a good relationship with all the pupils.
