Brain Health Fund

We need your support to achieve our objectives for the Rugby League Cares Brain Health Fund, a far-reaching education and support programme for both current and retired rugby league players.

The brain health programme is funded by voluntary donations and an active fundraising campaign of events run by Rugby League Cares.

The aim is to equip players and their families with the knowledge they need to sustain good brain health during their careers, and to provide important support for those who have been diagnosed with neurological conditions, both pre- and post-retirement.

Working with a wide range of organisations including the Rugby Football League and its member clubs, plus medical experts, the independent charity RL Cares has already begun to roll out a comprehensive education programme to current players about this important aspect of their health.

The fund will also provide advice to players suffering poor brain health, and to their families, such as signposting to support from statutory services and, should resources allow, respite care.

To help us support the sport’s heroes in their hour of need, you can make a donation to the RL Cares Brain Health Fund here
