Benefiting Charity

Welcome to the RFU Injured Players Foundation. We are Rugby Union’s charity: the Injured Players Foundation. With your backing, we look after seriously injured players for life and help prevent future injuries through research and education.

Our Vision: The rugby union game being played without catastrophic injuries occurring and all injured players leading the life that they wish to lead.

Our Mission: The IPF provides support and information to those who sustain a catastrophic injury as a result participating in rugby union, to empower them to lead as full and independent life as they are able to. We also work with all stakeholders to reduce the risk of these and other injuries in the game.

How the IPF helps: We are there for every seriously injured player, now and forever. From International players, right through to the grass roots game including Schools and Universities across England. We are also striving to make research breakthroughs to make the game safer for every current and future player who will get to enjoy this great game, as well as improve the care of those injured. You can find out more and read some personal stories about the work we are doing in the ‘What We Do’ section.

How you can help and get involved: We would ask 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 to find out how you, your club or even your company can help, and to be inspired by others who have already supported, please see our get involved section today.
