2. RUWSF Loan Scheme - two days left to complete

3. RUWSF Grant Reminder - two days left to apply

6. Webinars and on-demand videosUpdate on RUWSF Grant and LoansRFU Rugby Development Director, Steve Grainger gives an update on the Rugby Union Winter Survival Fund (RUWSF) Grant and Loan schemes.


Please note, we are updating our FAQs daily, so please keep checking back using the button below. FAQs will contain the version number and date to help keep track of when they have been updated.


The loan and grant scheme are two separate strands of funding, so clubs are able to apply for both where needed.Watch VideoCriteria & FAQsRugby Union Winter Survival Fund Loan SchemeA reminder that Presidents, Chairs, Honorary Secretaries and Treasurers at each club received an email from the Rugby Football Union last Friday which included a digital form to complete to indicate a non-binding interest in a loan.


If you would still like to lodge your interest, please ensure this form has been submitted by 5pm this Thursday, 25 February. We have included the link below for ease.


We request that only one representative of each club submits the form to avoid duplications.


The loans scheme is designed to support urgent infrastructure requirements of Rugby clubs at Levels 3 and below. This will be needs-based, to support essential infrastructure for survival and sustainability.


Loans will support clubs in immediate survival need - providing access to funding for facility works designed to respond to the impact of Covid-19 and enable clubs to get back playing when the time comes.


Loans to be made across three groups:


1. Up to 100% - Small-scale reboot projects – 2-year payment holiday and repaid in 8 years thereafter.

2. Up to 100% - Medium-scale projects – centrally procured with 3-year payment holiday and repaid in 8 years thereafter.

3. Large-scale projects (largely where these projects are essential for the survival of the organisation and would have progressed without support in the absence of Covid-19 impacts). Typically, loans matching 20-35% of project costs where the remainder of funding is in place and project ready to commence. 4-year payment holiday and repaid in 8 years thereafter.Interest FormRugby Union Winter Survival Fund Grant SchemeThe cut-off-point to apply for a grant is 5pm on Thursday 25 February. If a club or CB is unsure whether they are eligible, we would encourage them to apply so we can assess whether they qualify. It is safer to apply now than to miss the deadline and discover too late that you would have been eligible.


The Rugby Union Winter Survival Fund aims to support community clubs at Levels 3 and below that have been severely impacted by Covid-19 restrictions.


It covers a specific six-month period - costs must be incurred between 1 October 2020 to 31 March 2021. Clubs need to demonstrate financial need for funding to ensure survival.


You can find out more about the criteria and how to apply using the funding link below.


When completing the form, please ensure:


  • You only input numbers for financial information. For example, instead of writing zero, input 0.

  • You do not input symbols such as the £ sign. Simply input numbers. For example, to insert £100,000 input 100000.

  • All bank statements are required, not just the current account.

  • For the cash position at end of September, use the closing balance rather than the opening balance from statements and add up the balances across all accounts.

  • Golden roles are up to date in GMS.

Criteria & FAQsFunding PageReturn to RugbyWe welcome last night’s Government announcement that grassroots team sport including community rugby can return on Monday 29 March.


Over the coming weeks, we will work with Government to understand the number of players and format of rugby that will be permitted upon our return in both schools and community rugby. When we have clarified these details, and associated travel queries, we will share the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap alongside a step-by-step guide to returning to training and guidance around facilities re-opening.Return To RugbyLockdown Rugby ActivityInspired to Play Page

On our Inspired to Play page, we have included lockdown activities that have ranged from Q&A’s with England internationals Ben Youngs and Shaunagh Brown, to position specific workshops with the England Men’s team and Age Grade fitness sessions.

Home-schooling was given an added rugby twist this month, when ten England players joined online school assemblies from their Guinness Six Nations training camp.


Players answered pupils’ questions as Eddie Jones and England Rugby tried to help motivate students by giving them and their teachers something different to start their school day.


The activity was part of England Rugby’s wider programme of support for the community game, aiming to keep players engaged in rugby while they can’t play.

The Rugby Football Union and community rugby clubs have been gathering laptops and tablets to help.


Itoje, who was inspired by Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford’s food poverty campaign, was educated at Harrow and said: “The absolute priority right now is guaranteeing children have devices to learn. When they go back to school we need a review on access to laptops to support careers in a digitally-driven world.”.

This week’s headlines include:

1. Resources to support clubs and CBs through lockdown

2. Government financial support

3. Pause on DBS checks

4. Mitsubishi Motors Rugby Leadership Network

5. Webinars and on-demand videos

6. Digital Remembrance Wall

7. Leighton Buzzard RFC becomes a vaccination hubRFU HeadlinesResources to support clubs and CBs during lockdownAs promised, we have created a one-stop support centre to help clubs through lockdown. We have compiled information for you to use as and when it suits your club as we understand that clubs may need this information at different times, depending on individual circumstances. We will continue to update our resources in this area as we have more information.


While it sounds contradictory to suggest conducting a good governance health check during a pandemic, the national lockdown does provide a pause in the day-to-day running of clubs. This could serve as a time to assess good governance practices, so that clubs can be in as strong a position as is possible during these times, to be able to bounce back when rugby can return.


Alongside this, we have included a reminder below of funding options available to address more immediate concerns during lockdown. If you can’t find the information you need on the pages below, please get in touch with us via ClubSupport@RFU.com and we will respond as quickly as we can.Lockdown SupportFunding SupportGovernment Financial SupportLast week the Government announced various support packages, including one-off cash grants of £9,000 per property which can be topped up by local restrictions support grants of up to £3000 per month. Both are dependent on specific criteria.


Full Government information on the support available can be accessed here as well as what assistance is available here.


Criteria and all information can be found using the funding page below.Funding InformationPause on DBS checksFollowing the Government’s recent announcement that we are to stay at home, we are again implementing a temporary suspension of DBS checks while the national lockdown remains in force. This decision has been made in light of all rugby activity being suspended and the difficulties that come with in person ID checks required before volunteers can start.


The Safeguarding Team will keep this under constant review and intends to resume processing applications before the commencement of rugby activity.


Applicants who have already had their ID verified should complete their application.


Club Safeguarding Officers have received additional information by email. Please direct any queries to dbseapp@rfu.comMitsubishi Motors Rugby Leadership NetworkThe Mitsubishi Motors Rugby Leadership Network is an exciting and unique opportunity to acquire valuable skills and to network with other rugby leaders. To ensure our clubs are fit for the future and self-sustaining, we are looking for aspiring rugby leaders who can take their club to the next level.


We are looking for rugby leaders who:


• Don’t want to stand still and watch from the sidelines.

• Want to create sustainable clubs fit for the future.

• Have the enthusiasm and openness for learning and supporting others to do the same.

No funds have been issued yet, either to clubs or the RFU, and hence please don’t think you have missed out on anything yet. The fund was established to help ease the impact of the loss of revenue due to no spectators in the period October 1st to March 31st and we will update as soon as an agreement on eligibility and distribution is reached. This is likely to be an application process and will be needs based, it is not an automatic grant.


Sport England has also updated the Return to Play funding that was confirmed by Government last year. They have increased the available budget, as well as extending the deadline until Wednesday 30 June 2021.


In September, we also mentioned Covid-19 Business Interruption Insurance. There has recently been an update from the FCA, and policyholders should expect to hear from their broker, insurance advisor or insurer in the coming days if this applies to them.


Further info can be found on our funding page below.Funding Information#ShowYourShirtFollowing the success of our #ShowYourShirt Campaign during the Quilter Internationals, part of the Autumn Nations Cup, we are bringing back #ShowYourShirt for the Guinness Six Nations 2021.
