Making waves in our local communities

Sale Sharks Foundation is the charity partner of Sale Sharks, delivering programmes across health, education, inclusion, and grassroots rugby. Our mission is to promote physical and mental wellbeing in children and adults across the North West using the power of sport.

Established in 2010, Sale Sharks Foundation has spent the last decade changing over 75,000 lives in communities across our region. We are committed to introducing rugby to people of all ages and abilities, teaching vital life skills, tackling inequality and ultimately growing the Sharks Family.

The Foundation is proud to offer a broad and diverse range of programmes from wheelchair rugby and veterans’ groups to rugby camps and classroom sessions for 16-18 who are outside of mainstream education. To find out more about our work over the previous 12 months, take a look at Sharks Watch.
