Our story

The London Irish Foundation is the official charity of London Irish Rugby Football Club.

We deliver projects that use the power of sport to make a lasting, positive impact on individuals' lives whilst helping to build a meaningful and sustainable legacy for sport and education across our communities.

Within this, our key work strands are rugby development, education, community engagement and inclusion, all of which are underpinned by our core values – family, home from home, open to all, with sport at the heart.

How you can support us

Where we work

The Foundation delivers and engages with communities throughout Berkshire, Hampshire, Middlesex, Surrey and areas in the City of London.

We are based at Hazelwood in Sunbury-on-Thames, home of London Irish, and have a long history working in the community as a rugby club prior to the creation of the Foundation.

The groups we work with include: disabled, low socio-economic, black Asian minority, women and girls, special needs, prisoners and the homeless amongst others, all with a focus on improving lives through education, health and community engagement.

Our projects

Who we work with

Our work is driven by community delivery focusing directly with local education establishments, local authorities, councils, businesses, YMCAs and housing shelters and prisons, whilst identifying community issues and requirements that help develop and deliver projects across all areas.
