We provide immediate and lifelong support for rugby players who, while playing rugby at any level in England, sustain a catastrophic spinal cord injury or a traumatic brain injury that has resulted in significant disability.

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.

If you are, or a relative is, an injured player and you feel you need some financial support please see our Apply for Support page or for more information please email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
