Sharks Community Trust is the charitable arm of Sale Sharks, the North West’s only Premiership Rugby club. The charity was established in 2012 to help use rugby and sport for the wider community benefit, drawing on the core values of rugby, which are teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship, to deliver a range of community engagement programmes.

The use of rugby and sport has been used for many years to engage young people, and it is this interest that Sharks Community Trust seeks to draw upon. This includes delivering numeracy programmes in the classroom, linking sport with encouraging healthy eating and a healthy lifestyle, and delivering education particularly to young people who are not in employment, education or training (NEET). The Trust also has a comprehensive disability and inclusion programme, ‘In The Pack’ delivering a mixture of multi-sports and wheelchair sports to people with special and additional needs along with a successful ex-service personnel programme ‘Sharks Forces’ that supports veterans and their families with the transition from service to civilian with housing, employment and social and physical activity support.

We offer services and activities to improve the physical health, mental health and employability skills of ex-service personnel and their families. We give them a visibility within their community delivering the project at community venues. Delivering drop-in social hubs to develop and maintain relationships with individuals who are sceptical and nervous at engaging with civilian society. Enhancing personal and social skills such as communication skills and confidence along with increasing employability skills and their well-being. We also work with the veteran’s family, introducing an intergenerational approach. We use our relationship with community rugby clubs across the North West to create a social hub for the whole community. We use gym and sport facilities based within clubs and use the clubhouse to host themed workshops. We also work closely with rugby clubs to identify volunteering opportunities as part of the programme. We create and offer a wide range of sporting activities for Veterans who are blind or visually impaired, there is a huge gap in the local offering from other key stakeholders in regards to physical activities suitable for Veterans with additional needs.

We’re constantly adapting our approach to best suit the needs of those who come to us for support. We provide the following programmes:
Therapy – bespoke activities and requires the careful combination of medical practitioner, equine expert, the individual and our horses.

Learning – projects under this programme assist both adults and children. They focus on developing life skills, values and building confidence and character.

Rehabilitation – deliver support to those rehabilitating from a range of issues. Current projects are focussing on addictions (drugs, alcohol and gambling) dependency, crime and behavioural issues.

Recovery – these programmes support those in recovery from anxiety and depression, grief, domestic abuse and isolation issues. The demand to support this latter group has significantly increased as a result of Covid-19.

Sport and Recreation – We support active lifestyles and the benefits they have on health and well-being. Therefore we make our equine centres affordable to all who wish to use them. We support the NHS in their delivery of a holistic approach to health and well being and the social prescribing of activities.

Firm Base – This programme supports our equine centres which provide the charity with a firm base from which to operate. The centres become vital welfare hubs which link together many families coping with isolation and welcome newcomers to the communities.

Virtual Equestrian Centre – thanks to the generous support of Sport England, Tedworth Equestrian’s ‘Virtual Equestrian Centre’ initiative uses a virtual platform to tackle inequality of opportunity and participation in equestrian activity. We aim to break down barriers, improve accessibility and work toward the goal of enhancing the wellbeing of the Armed Forces Community and the local communities in which the Armed Forces are based. The platform includes interactive zoom sessions and pre-recorded video content, tailored to the demands of equestrianism, and will be accessible to everyone online.

Equine Therapy Courses – thanks to funding from the Wiltshire Community Foundation and The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, The Armed Forces Equine Charity will work with Warrior Equine and Horseback UK to deliver four new equine therapy courses in 2021 that will help 40 people who are facing severe mental and physical health challenges. Attendees will work with the horses loose in a round-pen, building trust with the animals through body language, emotional control and stress management – all vital skills that can be translated into everyday life.
Veterans Polo – thanks to the generous 2 year Grant granted in May 2019 by The Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust and co-funded by Tedworth Equestrian, the Veterans Polo Project aims to foster a sense of belonging among the veterans community. Delivered by Tedworth Park Polo Club, memberships range from social to corporate, accommodating all abilities and ambitions.

Radley College has a long history of helping families affected by death and injury in warfare. In 1917 The Radley College War Memorial was created with donations from former pupils and their families to provide a Radley education for the sons of Old Radleians killed in The Great War.

Today, the Governors of Radley are keen to build on this heritage by recognising the outstanding dedication and sacrifice of our current Service men and women.
