Dallaglio RugbyWorks is a charity founded by Lawrence Dallaglio OBE, born out of his passion for supporting the hardest to reach young people through the game of rugby. The charity has one clear mission which we’re incredibly passionate about: to help young people who have fallen outside of mainstream education into sustained further education, employment or training.
RugbyWorks engages 14-17 year old boys and girls within the Alternative Education system over three years. Alternative provision schools educate young people who for one reason or another have been failed by the mainstream school system who haven’t been able to support their individual needs and as a result, they have been excluded. These young people often come from chaotic backgrounds with multiple risk factors such as criminality and troubled families. They tend to have lower success rates in education and employment than pupils from mainstream schools. So by age 14, their future prospects are devastatingly low.
