The coaching staff and a couple of reserve team players from St Helens RLFC Saints Community Development Foundation were in Southporttoday (Thursday 23rd August 2012) coaching youngsters from Southport Rugby Club.  

The foundation aims to promote community participation in healthy recreation and to promote the education and personal development of children and young people.

IN partnership with St Helens RLFC, the independent charitable trust “Saints Community Development Foundation (SCDF)” addresses such topics as social inclusion, health promotion, sports coaching, anti-racism, anti-bullying, player development, local heritage and raising educational attainment by using rugby league as a tool to improving personal and social skills.

Each year the Foundation formulates the delivery of projects that work directly with more than 50,000 local young people.

Saints Community Development Foundation’s ultimate aim is to make a difference in our community but this can only be done through partnership working.

The Foundation is a Charitable organisation which now relies on donations, grants and funding from government, local agencies and organisations as well as subscribed activities. These funds are vital to enable Community Saints to not only continue, but to further develop their good work across the town.
