Barking RFC - Barking RFC Community Programme

Since its inception in 2012 Barking RFC's Community programmes have set out to engage the young people of Barking and Dagenham in physical activity. This has been completed using Rugby Union’s core values of Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportmanship. We aim to be a hub for community engagement in the borough via the power of sport.

The programme uses the power of tag rugby sessions to deliver a combination of schools based intervention and post school/weekend activities. In addition a reading programme. Along with their schools based reading with rugby programme, the core aim is to ensure participants have a sense of purpose developed from the weekly sessions, and are taking part in structured but fun weekly physical activity that can help them feel more confident to make positive lifestyle choices.
