When the WRU created its core values, the Mission for Community Rugby was clearly emphasised as: Developing grassroots through participation, supporting clubs and bringing communities together.
The WRU recognises the value of its current volunteer workforce and in line with this recognition has set its focus firmly on supporting and developing this workforce by creating a range of initiatives and programmes based on the needs of clubs and volunteers. This focus will go beyond the on-field volunteers and for the first time, seeks to support the off-field volunteers such as the club secretary and the club chairman.
The WRU is also committed to encouraging and recruiting new volunteers to support those volunteers already in place. Underpinning the whole concept is the recognition that volunteering can be a rewarding experience - particularly the opportunity to be part of a club community where volunteering effort is recognised and rewarded.
