Touch Rugby Tournament 2019
The LSEG Foundation is currently supporting two partner charities in the UK for 2019:
UNICEF ensures that more of the world's children are fed, vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. It has also done more to influence laws, policies and customs to help protect children around the world. Visit the UNICEF website for more information.
School-Home Support (SHS)
School-Home Support (SHS) gets children back into school and ready to learn. Working with schools, local authorities and other children's settings, SHS provide personalised support to children and families, tackling the underlying barriers to a successful education to improve the life chances of children. Visit the SHS website for more information.
The Harlequins Foundation delivers a range of programmes and partnerships that use rugby and the Harlequins spirit to inspire, educate and equip disadvantaged young people. Visit the Harlequins Foundation website for more information.
Working together to build a brighter future for the next generation…
Our mental health campaign, METTTLE, aims to:
- Raise awareness and challenge stigma around mental health.
- Build the mental resilience of young people.
- Equip our coaches to deal with mental health and well-being.
- Support the wellness of our staff and players.
In September 2016, we piloted our eight week mental resilience school programme to help children and young people develop the skills to deal with stressful and challenging times and situations. Visit the Harlequins Foundation website for more information.
Our girls rugby programme, which supports Harlequins wider women and girls strategy, aims to:
- Increase accessibility and participation – providing opportunities for girls to take part in rugby within PE lessons, after school clubs, and festivals.
- Inspire and Excel – using our coaches to nurture and develop girls progression within the game.
- Develop and Sustain – by educating staff, supporting schools, and providing an onward pathway.
In our first term (October to December 2016) we reached 600 girls through classes, camps and afterschool clubs, 33 of whom have transferred to club level. Visit the Harlequins Foundation website for more information.
