Bath Rugby Foundation
Caryl Thomas
Inclusion Manager

Caryl eats, breathes and sleeps rugby. Born in West Wales, she forged her rugby career as a community rugby coach at Neath Rugby before starting at Bath Rugby Foundation in 2008. Caryl has gained 100 caps for Bath Rugby Ladies, represented Wales Women in Six Nation’s Championships and played in two Rugby World Cups.
“Bath Rugby Foundation is a fantastic charity that really develops people and their aspirations. My favourite project is ‘Get Active Into Work’. It is a 12 week employment & confidence programme for people not in education, employment or training aged 16 + (and there really is no limit). It is a genuinely life changing programme. We have seen people long term unemployed transformed to not only find employment but become active people in the community. I hope to keep showing people of every age that there is always room to grow and develop!”
