As the first Insport Gold accredited NGB it is our goal to make rugby available for anyone who wishes to play it, regardless of ability, by providing 'Positive Rugby Experiences' whilst contributing to the long-term health and wellbeing of society.
Our plan is to continue the growth and development of inclusive rugby in Wales by modifying the traditional approach and ensuring we are inclusive, adaptive and engaging to all the people and communities we serve.

This is a plan to grow, develop and enhance the offer of rugby union in Wales by modifying the traditional approach and ensuring we are inclusive and engaging to all people and communities.

This is a game for everyone in Wales.

 

The Inclusive Rugby Landscape highlights the opportunities available to participants.

WRU Objectives:

• To determine the contribution that the WRU can make toward the inclusive forms of the game for disabled people, including deaf rugby, Unified (mixed ability) rugby and wheelchair rugby;

• To ensure that the community game is inclusive for disabled people, including playing, officiating, refereeing, coaching, volunteering and supporting;

• To identify the steps that will need to be taken to ensure that the WRU workforce and wider 'family' are supported and upskilled to adopt a more inclusive approach to rugby;

• To ensure that the WRU's governance is reflective and responsive to the needs of disabled people;

• To identify how the WRU can contribute to other disability sport pathways, including but not exclusively Paralympic, Deaflympic and Intellectual Disability.

As part of our ongoing relationship with Disability Sport Wales and our commitment to the 'Jersey for All' inclusive ethos we have developed a guidance booklet with the correct terminology to be used by clubs and coaches, please click the link to download:
