From Prison to the Pitch

“It's physical but you shake hands at the end of it...I just wish I had started rugby earlier ”

3PillarsProject were lucky enough to host England Rugby for an afternoon in the midst of the #RWC19, who came to hear from our coach @Steve O’Meara and learn about his journey from 3Pillars course participant to coach.

Steve’s story is why 3Pillars’ exists , why rugby's values, physical discipline and team spirit can transform lives. We engage young people at risk of crime or in custody through rugby. With ongoing mentorship and support, these young people are able to unleash their full potential and positively contribute to society.

Steve is a brilliant role-model for how well this can work in practice - we’re incredibly proud of his story and his work, and look forward to seeing where his career takes him as he endeavours to get back into professional boxing.

Huge thanks to England Rugby for such a brilliant video and, as ever, thank you to all our supporters for helping 3Pillars to make a difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable and hard-to-reach young people across London.
