Gloucester Rugby Foundation are proud to run their Homeless Rugby Project, supported by Gloucester City Mission and Gloucester Catherdral.
The aim of the project is to provide a safe environment for those that are homeless, have experienced homelessness or in supported living, to participate in physical activity.
The benefits for the individuals that take part in the sessions are increased confidence, provides a social hub, enables participants to stay physically active and a decrease in stress and anxiety. We also have a team on hand to offer support to those that need it.
Meeting up every Monday between 10am and 11am, the sessions take place in the Chapter House of Gloucester Cathedral which provides a striking backdrop for the sessions.
The project aims to give people a sense of worth and purpose which can really help with confidence and that feeling of belonging. The programme welcomes anyone with open arms, whether they have played rugby before or not.
We want to create a positive environment so that everyone feels a part of the community and a part of the club.
