Gloucester Rugby Foundation is the official charitable arm of Premiership Rugby side Gloucester Rugby. Established in 2016, the Gloucester Rugby Foundation has grown to become one of the leading charitable organisations in Gloucestershire, using sport as a vehicle to achieve positive social change.
Every day, the Gloucester Rugby Foundation’s team of coaches and educators work with people of all ages, from introducing children in primary schools to rugby union, right through to using the club’s proud heritage to tackle isolation in older people.
‘Your Club, Your Community’ sets out a clear ambition to become a leading sports foundation, recognised for its approach to partnership working and achieving community impact.
