About Bath Rugby Foundation

Bath Rugby Foundation is Bath Rugby’s charity and our purpose is to empower vulnerable children and young people in Bath and the surrounding area to succeed.

Our mission

We believe every child in Bath and North East Somerset deserves an equal opportunity and therefore the chance to succeed.

Bath is a city famed for its Roman baths, impressive Georgian architecture, Jane Austen – and of course its rugby club. However, behind the Georgian façade lies a different story.

20% of children in Bath live in poverty. Twerton West is in the top 10% most deprived areas in the UK & Whiteway is in the bottom 1% in the country in its provision of education and training for children & young people.

We don’t believe it is right that such inequality exists in our city. Bath Rugby Foundation exists to bridge the gap between the poorest and most affluent areas, and build a positive, supportive community in Bath and the surrounding area.

Our action

We believe every child and every young person in Bath and North East Somerset deserves an equal opportunity and the same chance to succeed.
Our ambition is to change the lives of vulnerable children and young people who have not been given that equal chance of success.

We are a small team with a big voice and an even bigger impact. Our programmes focus on key areas of need in our community – Education, Inclusion and Employability.

We work with young people in their own environments – whether that’s in the park, at school or in the street.

Bath Rugby Foundation we use the core values of rugby to help develop young people mentally and physically. By using the values of Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline, Teamwork and Sportmanship our coaches encourage the children and young people we work with to develop and positive growth mindset and reach their true potential. We use sport to help participants to adopt a healthy lifestyle and build life skills.

Our participants leave with raised confidence, and new life skills, part of the Bath Rugby family.
