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.

We've launched a new programme which will support our young people at risk of falling into anti-social behaviour.

ukactive and RugbyWorks have launched Open Doors – a new programme which will support young Londoners at risk of falling into anti-social behaviour, by providing activity in schools during half-term.

The programme will be delivered in partnership with ukactive and will take place during half-term in February 2020 at a school in Sutton which we work within, which is opening its doors to act as a community hub for the week.

It will engage young people from Croydon who are at risk of involvement with crime, using a productive skill-building programme supported by inspirational talks from Nike sponsored athlete, Iron Man athlete and former armed robber, John McAvoy.

The aim is to use the power of sport to show the young people who attend that they all have the power to choose where they go in their lives, and provide them with the tools and confidence to head towards a positive pathway.

Rachel Roxburgh, CEO of Dallaglio RugbyWorks, said: “We’re pleased to be working alongside ukactive on the Open Doors programme again, to provide an exciting and much needed, opportunity for the young people we support in Sutton.

“Our mission as a charity is to support marginalised young people who are at risk of being left behind by society, into sustained education, employment or training and to reduce the chances of them being involved in violence or criminal activity.

“The Open Doors programme provides a collaborative approach for ukactive and Dallaglio RugbyWorks to deliver engaging skill-building sessions which will benefit the young people involved in the long-term.

“Experiences such as our RugbyWorks’ Career Taster Days and the Open Doors programme, provide an invaluable experience for young people that will allow them to develop pathways for their futures, and equip them with the knowledge and skillset to move away from a life of potentially criminal activity.”
