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.
Impetus-PEF teams up with Dallaglio Foundation
The Dallaglio Foundation are proud to announce a new partnership with Impetus-PEF (Impetus – The Private Equity Foundation), the leading strategic and transformational youth charity.
Impetus-PEF currently funds and works with over 20 charities in the UK and delivers funding and strategic resources to charities and social enterprises they class as having high potential and who work to improve the lives and prospects of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. The pioneering youth charity will provide the Dallaglio Foundation with strategic and operational support as well funding to develop the impact of RugbyWorks.
Lawrence Dallaglio, comments “I’m delighted that Impetus-PEF has committed to support us in the development of our RugbyWorks programme. Rugby is a sport I feel incredibly passionate about and I truly believe that the values of the game can help transform the lives of the hardest to reach young people across the country. We’re excited to benefit from Impetus-PEF’s expertise to help us maximise the potential of the programme.”
Julia Grant, Chief Executive of Impetus-PEF, commented, “The Rugby World Cup was a powerful reminder that rugby can inspire people of all ages across the world. We have been so impressed by the Dallaglio Foundation’s programme, which is already bringing positive change in the lives of disengaged young people. We are excited to be working with the Dallaglio Foundation to harness that potential.”
Rachel Roxburgh, Chief Executive of the Dallaglio Foundation, said: “Impetus-PEF’s commitment of expertise, strategic direction and funding will help move our programmes a step further, delivering the increased impact we expect for the young people we work with. With their belief and support, we are better placed to fulfil our own potential to help so many young people secure greater long-term prospects.”
