We need supporters like you to get on your bike to raise money to help injured rugby players this summer by taking part in the 2018 Prudential Ride London. Places are available now on a first come first served basis, so don’t delay and apply today.

As the Winter Olympics come to a close, a group of catastrophically injured rugby players will take part in an adapted skiing course this March on the slopes of Andorra as part of the new IPF Engage Programme.

In 1993 Stuart Birt was away from home dealing with a fire at his firm’s factory when someone called him to say his 18-year-old son had been airlifted to Stoke Mandeville Hospital from an inter-house rugby match at school.

We urgently need runners to fill empty places in half marathons & 10k’s to raise money in support of injured players this spring. Places are available now in the Brighton Half Marathon, The London Landmarks Half, the Big Half, & the Vitality London 10,000.

We recently completed a set of short films with the help of a number of injured rugby players supported by the charity, giving an insight in to the impact of a catastrophic injury and how the IPF can help when this happens.

It was a double celebration as 22-year-old Harry Langley heard that he had been selected for the Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby talent squad and cheered England on to a 30-6 victory against the Wallabies.

Mark Bowen visited the IPF Box to watch England v Argentina in the Old Mutual Wealth Series during the Autumn Series and agreed to give the IPF an insight in to his story.

At every England home match at Twickenham the RFU Injured Players Foundation hosts rugby players with catastrophic and life-changing injuries sustained playing the game, in the charity's adapted hospitality box. Discover what happens on a match day inside the box.

To launch his biography, one of rugby’s most iconic players, Budge Rogers OBE, will be holding a book signing at Twickenham Stadium before the New Zealand v Barbarians match, with £1 from every copy sold donated to the IPF by Pitch Publishing.

When you support the IPF with your club or by taking on a challenge, you make a huge difference to the lives of injured rugby players across England. Find out how you can make a difference to the rugby family this season!

Gordon Dale, who served with the Royal Air Force and was injured playing rugby in 1985, is still very much part of the Injured Players Foundation family although now living in the land of the long white cloud.

IPF specialist knowledge and dogged determination recently ensured that one injujed player wasn’t left sleeping on his sofa – not a great situation for someone with a spinal cord injury.

Lee Jones and his fiancé Laura left their 22-month-old twins Harley and Noah in capable hands and were honoured guests in the RFU Injured Players box at Twickenham to watch England secure the Calcutta Cup.
