Restart Rugby


Restart is the official charity of The Rugby Players Association (RPA) and are dedicated to supporting professional rugby players suffering from serious injury, illness or hardship.

The charity provides financial and practical support to players and their families during difficult times, including help with the cost of medical treatment, rehabilitation equipment and disability support. Restart is also there when players need emotional support to help with mental health issues, by providing a 24/7 Confidential Counselling Service.



Restart supports players during and after their professional rugby career in England, with over 800 current and 400 former players able to access their help should they need it.
The work they do is funded entirely through voluntary donations and fundraising activity as Restart receives no government or lottery funding. Therefore, the charity relies on the support from businesses, rugby supporters, fundraisers, generous donors, and the players themselves to ensure their vital, and in some cases lifesaving, help can continue every season.
