DALLAGLIO RUGBYWORKS

Dallaglio RugbyWorks is a long-term intensive skills development programme, based on the values of rugby, delivered to 14-17 year olds outside of mainstream education. The goal? To ensure they achieve sustained education, employment or training.

Dallaglio RugbyWorks was founded by Lawrence Dallaglio OBE, former England Rugby and Wasps Captain.  Having experienced a troubled time in his youth after the death of his sister, Lawrence found rugby which he credits for helping overcome a very turbulent time in his life.  Lawrence recognised the power that rugby had in transforming his attitude, behaviour and aspirations and channeled that power into the development of RugbyWorks.

We are currently working in 37 Pupil Referral Units in London, South Wales, North West, the South West, East Midlands and Newcastle.  We work with approximately 8-10 young people per school.

RugbyWorks engages teenagers who have been permanently excluded from mainstream education and enrolled in Alternative Provision schools through the sport of rugby.  This target population comes from chaotic backgrounds with high levels of social risk factors such as troubled families, criminality and unemployment.  They have much lower success rates in education and employment compared to pupils from mainstream schools.  RugbyWorks is designed to help these young people onto a positive pathway to achieve sustained education, employment or training with a particular focus on exposing them to various vocational opportunities. 

Why do we do this?  Because we know there are a huge range of factors leading to students being excluded from mainstream education.  And, for whatever that reason, we don’t believe that should signal exclusion from mainstream society too.

Thank you for supporting us.
