London RL Foundation History

The London Rugby League Foundation was formed as the Harlequins Rugby League Foundation in 2009, and later renamed the London Broncos Foundation when the professional club rebranded in 2012.

The Foundation was originally set up by the club to increase physical activity and social cohesion in the local community, and delivered rugby and dance activity extensively across South-West London and Surrey for a number of years, in all areas of the community from primary schools to care homes.

When the club moved to The Hive in 2014, the London Broncos, RFL and the Foundation trustees agreed the Foundation had the potential for a greater role in London, and renamed the charity as the London Rugby League Foundation with a broader remit for developing the sport and its community across Greater London and the surrounding counties.

Additional trustees were appointed to the Board in summer 2014, and a new Director appointed in January 2015 to manage the day to day running of the Foundation. The Foundation is currently delivering programmes in Greater London, Hertfordshire, Essex, Surrey, Kent and Sussex.
