Community Clubs boosted by Government Funding
We are thrilled that so many community rugby clubs across the country have benefited from the Rugby Union Winter Survival Fund.
Over the past few months, community rugby clubs nationwide have been boosted by an allocation of £30 million of government funding, the biggest single investment in the community game, following collaboration between the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), Sport England, the RFU and the grassroots game.
512 rugby clubs have already received Rugby Union Winter Survival Fund grants totalling £18,275,903, with more set to receive funding through the loans programme. You can read the full story below.
Rugby Camps Guidance
We have now consolidated our information regarding the organisation of rugby camps into one guide. This guidance is for all camp organisers at member clubs, educational institutions, Constituent Bodies (CB) and third party/commercial providers and can be found on the Summer Activity page below.
It will support anyone organising and delivering a rugby camp at any time and specifically during the summer of 2021 when out-of-season regulations have been changed due to the impact of Covid-19. We strongly recommend that all organisers see this guide as the template for their activity. There is separate guidance for those responsible for rugby camp approvals (mainly CBs).
If approvers have further questions please get in touch on email@example.com.
