It is every rugby player's dream to combine his job with his passion and pull on the jersey for his career, his club and ultimately his country. But what happens when it all goes wrong? A bad tackle, an unfortunate accident, an illness off the pitch - who is there to pick up the pieces?

The RPA BENEVOLENT FUND - the Players' Charity - provides advice, support and financial assistance for players who have suffered serious injury, illness or hardship.

Through the RPA Benevolent Fund we are able to assist players with essential medical costs and provide a support network which the player or family can turn to for help, advice or encouragement.
