With your backing, we look after seriously injured players for life and help prevent future injuries through research and education.
Our mission is to be there for every seriously injured player, now and forever. And we must continue to make research breakthroughs to make the game safer and improve the care of those injured.
But we need everyone that loves our great game to get involved. 100% of your support goes directly to injured players and prevention research – because the RFU cover all our admin costs. So please help today.

‘TIME FOR ACTION’
A New Year and Decade. Does your Club or local School have in mind a specific Youth Project to increase Junior participation for under 18’s in the game or to supplement provision for young players, outside normal Club/School activities. It could be a particular programme or a special event, perhaps for extra necessary equipment or to promote youth involvement.
The SRU Youth Trust has limited funds available to help with the development of Rugby for youngsters.
Suitable applications are invited for consideration and may be submitted with full details by letter/email by on or on behalf of Clubs/Schools to :- Nick Davies, Secretary/Trustee, 39, Sneyd Avenue, Newcastle, Staffs.. ST5 2PZ or firstname.lastname@example.org
People seem to have forgotten about the Youth Trust which was created by the County several years ago to help with the development of Youth Rugby, for players under 18 years of age, within the County.
It still exists and can provide financial help.
It can help where an individual, club or school is doing anything to increase Junior participation in the game or doing anything for youth players outside normal club activities.
So it could be a programme to increase participation, or a one off, special event or for extra equipment when numbers are being increase for any reason.
To apply is simple, just let Michael Procter (contact details above) have the details of the scheme and we can take it from there.
