City Gateway & Impetus
With Impetus’ belief and support, we’re better placed to fulfil our potential to help more young people secure greater long term prospects.
– Rachel Roxburgh, CEO, Dallaglio RugbyWorks
The need: Young people excluded from school struggle to achieve qualifications and progress. Only 4.3% of young people in alternative provision schools pass their English and maths GSCEs.
Our charity partner: Dallaglio RugbyWorks’ intensive programme of long-term skills development based around rugby is delivered across eight regions in England and Wales. The charity supports 14 to 17-year olds to get in to further education, employment or training.
Our impact: Since joining Impetus, Dallaglio RugbyWorks now work with their young people for longer, with more 1:1 support and workplace visits to help them successfully move on from school to their next destination. We’ve also supported Dallaglio RugbyWorks to grow from four to eight regions over three years with more of their programmes being delivered by their own specialist teams.
