Based on the IRFU values of respect and inclusion the IRFU is establishing a standardised, inclusive framework for disability rugby and developing club resources for the playing, coaching and promotion of rugby for individuals with disabilities. Disability Rugby is part of the IRFU Spirit of Rugby programme.
The aim of the programme is to integrate as many players as is safe and practicable as possible into the game as members of existing rugby clubs.
In order to assist clubs in this area a number of resources have been developed based current best practice and advice from clubs already involved in this aspect of the game. For these resources link on the following link: http://www.irishrugby.ie/club/disability_rugby.php
Meath LSP supports this development locally by assisting local clubs to become more inclusive in Meath.
