Former England Rugby Captain and 2003 World Cup Winner Lawrence Dallaglio set up the Dallaglio Foundation in 2009 with a core objective of supporting disengaged young people into sustained employment, further education or training through the power of rugby.
The Dallaglio Foundation’s primary programme RugbyWorks is founded on long-term relationships working nationally in Pupil Referral Units, with small groups of 14-17 year olds. These young people have been excluded from mainstream education and are at increased risk of long-term unemployment, criminality and imprisonment. They have much lower success rate in education and employment compared to pupils from mainstream schools.
RugbyWorks is based around a curriculum of playing rugby, developing employability skills and character through games and workshops and providing experiences in the workplace. Over a period of three years, Dallaglio Foundation coaches offer stability to often unstable lives and provide a personal development pathway to sustained further education, training or employment.
