Yate Rugby are delighted to partner with the Bristol Bears Community Foundation, becoming a Club Connexion partner.


 Bristol Bears Community Foundation is the club’s award-winning charity, delivering programmes that are proven to change the lives of people across the region.

The registered charity works with over 8,000 people from the local community each year and is regularly recognised for its work on a national scale, winning numerous Parliamentary Awards since 2008.

The Foundation delivers a broad range of programmes (16) across the South West, serving the community across four key areas: education, participation, health, and inclusion. The charity works with participants as young as five-years-old to 104.

Through the power of sport, Bristol Bears Community Foundation aims to inspire every young and older person it works with, helping them to unlock their potential. The charity benefits tremendously from its well-established relationship with the club, with its staff and players providing a superb vehicle for club and community engagement, contributing to the club’s vision to ‘inspire the community through rugby success.’

Club Connexion is Bristol Bears' local club partnership offer which supports the community clubs in our area with coach education workshops and player development camps amongst many other benefits. Junior Academy and Community Foundation staff, who have extensive experience of working within the community game, work alongside the many hundred of volunteers across the game in our area, to help build the best rugby community possible.
