PROJECT RUGBY

Over the next few weeks the Foundation are busy putting together bitesize virtual challenges alongside our London Irish 1st team players.

These will be circulated to grassroot clubs, schools, and community groups, so keep an eye out and have some fun!

Project Rugby is a joint initiative between Premiership Rugby and Gallagher designed to increase participation in the game by people from traditionally under-represented groups. These include:

  • Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups
  • People from lower socio-economic backgrounds 
  • Disabled groups

ENGAGEMENT

The programme currently engages participants aged 14+ (and 16+ for disabled groups) and is delivered by Foundation staff across Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire, and Middlesex. 

The Foundation provides opportunities for people to participate in the game at a time and place that is easily accessible for them. The objective is to enable participants to progress into community clubs by ensuring channels are in place for them to do so. 

KEY OUTCOMES

  • Transition from Project Rugby activities into regular rugby participation
  • Improve individual physical and mental well-being 
  • Reduce social misconduct and isolation
  • Challenge existing perceptions of the game, positioning rugby as a sport for anyone regardless of background, ability, or gender
  • Use positive role models to act as mentors

All being well, the Foundation will be back delivering face to face in our community schools from the 19th of April 2021. Working with the schools we will be adhering to all new COVID guidelines.

For more information, please contact Foundation Manager Joseph Pegg joseph.pegg@london-irish.com

We have really enjoyed starting to learn about rugby, it is fun, and I get time to spend time playing with friends"
