“Sport can bring many advantages to our society and, as a governing body, the RFU has been striving, with the help of the Youth Charter, to ensure that everyone can enjoy these benefits. We are intent on widening the opportunities for playing rugby in all its facets, from tag rugby to the very top of the game, covering inner cities to rural communities and a complete cross section of our population. In this document we have detailed some of the RFU’s social inclusion initiatives which have been supported by the Youth Charter. Our sport can be a vehicle for social change, it can improve school attendance, community safety and the health and well-being of our young people. ‘Rugbywise’ will give an insight into some of the results being achieved.”
