Working with the Community Department at Richmond Rugby Club, we have created the Stewart Barlow Bursary scheme, which provides the membership fee to join the club to a number of young people.
The Richmond Heavies Foundation has provided support to a young rugby player from Ealing Trailfinders who sustained a serious injury to assist with his care and rehabilitation.
We have been able to share our thoughts and ideas with other community rugby clubs and local schools who may benefit from the plans we have in place.
If there is anything on this page that is relevant to your circumstances, please do get in touch with the Richmond Heavies Foundation to see how we might be able to help and support you.
“The foundation is committed to a long term programme of screening for all players and members of Richmond over the age of 14”
“This opportunity is one of a kind really, the fact that players don’t have to pay for it is invaluable”
Richmond Women’s Chair
“Richmond are going to lead the way on this, hopefully other clubs will follow”
“As rugby players we are meant to be big strong and nothing really hurts us, but mental health effects everyone”

“There are many reasons to support the foundation, not only are you helping to save lives but you're making it a safer and better place to play”
“without screening you just never know, its very important, its brilliant work what the Richmond Heavies are doing, I’m glad to be part of it”
“it’s a magnificent club and the foundation is a wonderful testament to the way Richmond behaves, it’s fantastic and I’m very proud”
