What we do

Rugby for Heroes works with the rugby community to raise funds and awareness for military personnel who are making the transition to civilian life. We are committed to providing financial and personal support, to help individuals overcome the many challenges that this transition presents.

Quite simply we are passionate about providing servicemen and women a level of support they deserve.

Why the Rugby Community?

There are some obvious parallels that can be drawn between the UK’s Armed Forces and the sport of rugby – the traditions and core values of: leadership, teamwork, commitment, discipline, courage, respect, loyalty and camaraderie are all values in which the sport of rugby and the military unite behind and aspire to, and it is these values that RUGBY FOR HEROES champions.

And when the time comes for a person to leave the Armed Forces we believe the rugby community can offer a sense of belonging to our returning heroes that is easy for them to recognise and relate to. Through rugby teams, coaching and the wider community we are a dependable friend in a time of transition.
