Dallaglio RugbyWorks is an intensive, long-term skills development programme based on rugby, through which we aim to get teenagers outside of mainstream education into sustained education, employment or training.
Macquarie Group partners with Dallaglio Foundation
The Dallaglio Foundation announces new partnership with Macquarie Group Foundation.
The Dallaglio Foundation and the Macquarie Group Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Macquarie Group, today announced a three year strategic partnership.
Macquarie’s support will focus on RugbyWorks, the Dallaglio Foundation’s rugby-inspired education programme designed to engage and improve the lives of the hardest to reach young people who have been excluded from mainstream education.
In addition to supporting two local alternative provision schools, Macquarie will host the annual RugbyWorks Awards and will play a significant role in supporting three RugbyWorks tournaments that take place around London during the academic year.
David Fass, Macquarie Group Chief Executive, EMEA comments: “We are very pleased to be partnering with the Dallaglio Foundation to help support and grow the RubgyWorks programme over the next three years. Contributing to the communities in which we live and work is at the heart of the Macquarie Group Foundation and our colleagues look forward to volunteering their time and expertise to support young people to better their education and future employment prospects through sport.”
Rachel Roxburgh, Chief Executive of the Dallaglio Foundation, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Macquarie over the next three years. Their long term commitment mirrors the continued support we give to our young people which is crucial in building trust and nurturing positive behavioural and educational development. We’re looking forward to developing the programme with Macquarie over the coming years.”
