Matt Hampson Foundation

Matt Hampson Foundation

As an emerging talent in the world of rugby, Matt Hampson's world was rocked by a serious spinal injury sustained while training with England Under-21s. The shock would last months, the impact forever. Paralysed from the neck down, Matt faced the toughest challenge of his life.

Drawing on the passion, grit and steely determination that defined him as a player, Matt saw his accident not as an end, but as a new beginning.

Through the Matt Hampson Foundation, Matt offers hope and inspiration to young people with similar injuries, sharing his experiences and devoting his life to raising vital funds for those in need of support.

Inspiring and supporting young people seriously injured through sport.

The Matt Hampson Foundation

The Matt Hampson Foundation was formed in 2011 and is registered as a charity with the Charity Commission of England and Wales. Charity number 1139823.

What we do

Our aim is to provide advice, support, relief and/or treatment for anyone suffering serious injury or disability which has arisen from any cause, but in particular from participation in or training for any sport, sporting activity or other form of physical education or recreation.

We mainly assist people who have received such injuries in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland but that does not preclude us from helping those in other parts of the world who need urgent assistance.

We assist individuals by offering direct grants or by paying into existing and future funds to assist with equipment, technology or just every-day expenses. We also assist organisations and institutions whose aims are similar to our own and who also provide relief and treatment to those who have suffered injuries as described above.

Through Matt Hampson, the foundation is also able to offer mentoring, friendship and education. Very often a chat with somebody such as Matt who has been through it, 'got the t-shirt' and overcome many issues himself is the best assistance that injured personnel can get.

Matt's educational visits to schools and clubs provide understanding and can be extremely motivational to those who hear him talk about his experiences and his zest for life.If you would like to know more about the foundation, its aims or you would like to know more about Matt's educational visits, contact info@hambo.co.uk or visit www.matthampsonfoundation.org for further details.

Matt Hampson chose to get busy living after sustaining his life changing injury in 2005.

This is the philosophy behind everything the Matt Hampson Foundation aims to do; we help people get busy living again after a life altering injury. Whether by helping them get back into sport or just assisting in making adjustments to their new life we are there to help and support them on their chosen path. All our beneficiaries are getting busy living and we are very proud of this fact.

Our Purpose

To inspire and support young people seriously injured through sport.

Our Mission - GET BUSY LIVING
