Who we are
Coventry Rugby Foundation is the charitable arm of the club and works tirelessly in the community to deliver outreach projects to our city’s youngsters through education, health, wellbeing and sport.
Through grants and sponsorship, we provide funding for development in sport and physical activity to help with the mental and physical health of young people in Coventry and surrounding areas, while also targeting support for vulnerable communities.
Delivered by a Community team with vast experience in rugby and working in communities, Coventry Rugby Foundation works across schools, rugby clubs, charities and businesses. Passionate about leaving a positive, lasting impression, we strive to develop opportunities for all ages, genders, ability and ethnicities.
What we do
We invest in our community to create opportunities for young people to fulfil their potential. In 2020/21, we linked up with more than 20 schools in Coventry, Warwickshire and Birmingham. By coupling rugby and education, we provided more than 100 hours per week of engaging physical activity, and we’re extending our Schools Programme even further.
Through a variety of programmes and projects, Coventry Rugby Foundation will run more health education, multi-sport provisions and literacy classes than ever before. We’ll be reaching out to Primary, Secondary and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) schools to provide skills, interaction, education and inspiration from attainable role models.
By interacting with young people in schools, and with other agencies involved in youth provision, we have a huge opportunity to influence the opportunities and potential in community.
We provide nutritional meals in school holidays to those impacted by food poverty, we deliver coaching sessions for mixed ability and wheelchair rugby, and we create unforgettable matchday experiences for kids’ rugby teams. Rugby is a game for everyone and we want to get all kids active.
This is Our Club in Our City
According to a population project by Coventry City Council in 2016, there are 81,957 children and young people (under 18) living within Coventry. We’re their biggest supporters but we can’t do it without the donations, assistance and generosity of sponsors, businesses and stakeholders.
By investing in Coventry Foundation, businesses invest in the city of Coventry and its community. Together we can provide tangible results for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) plans and commitments.
We deliver hands-on coaching programmes, educational offerings including sessions focused on literacy, sessions on health, nutrition and psychology, girls’ rugby clubs and much, much more.
