Vision, Mission, Objectives & Aims





In order for the Berkshire Executive to perform efficiently, we had to ensure that we could agree exactly what we should be doing to support rugby in Berkshire that would shape our activity identified on our Berkshire Planning, Funding and Reporting document (refer to separate section).

The RFU has identified their 6 Key Drivers for the Community Game that helps direct the activity of RFU staff, their CBs and the clubs - plus schools, colleges & universities and referees societies. In addition, the RFU develops projects targeted at current specific issues, for example, the retention of particularly 16-24 year olds, improving club facilities in advance of the expected influx of players due to RWC2015, and increasing the number of coaches and referees for the same reason.

Overall the RFU also has other objectives, such as, providing leadership and governance, generating revenue and funding to support the game, invest in their facilities, business activities and develop elite players for the national sides.

In a similar way, Berkshire County RFU sees its role as including providing leadership and governance, generating revenue and funding to support the game, and develop players giving them the opportunity to represent their county and hopefully at a higher level.

Below is the outcomes of our deliberations. You will notice that the key words are: support, provide, recognise, assist, communicate, manage, promote, lead, share and liaise.

Partnership is the over-riding key to developing rugby in Berkshire.
