Using rugby to tackle education issues

Sport doesn’t just benefit the body; it can also help build a brighter future – as the Dallaglio RugyWorks project is proving so successfully nationwide.


The Dallagio Foundation works with disengaged young people in Pupil Referral Units, to give them the practical support, experience and ability needed to invest in their own future.


I was therefore delighted to host a Parliamentary reception for the Foundation, when I met staff, including Lawrence Dallaglio, and some of those who have benefitted from the scheme.
