At fourfive, we don’t mean to brag but we have lots of friends. Our circle is always growing and we are constantly looking for ways to reach more people and support those around us.
Our partnership programme is a great way for us to reach those who need a little extra support and we’re so proud to announce that we have renewed our Official Wellness Partnership with The Matt Hampson Foundation for 2023.
Founded in 2010 by Matt Hampson OBE, or Hambo as he is affectionately known, the charity was created to help young people injured playing sport. The former Leicester and England Under 21 Prop suffered his own life changing injury in 2005 when an accident during rugby training left him paralysed from the neck down.
Matt’s personal and inspiring ethos “Get Busy Living” has also become the backbone of the foundation which inspires and supports young people living with serious injuries. Through expert physiotherapy, specialist personal training, support, mentoring and advice, the Foundation helps people with life-changing injuries to get busy living again.
“Having already established official wellness supplier partnerships with some of the leading rugby teams in Europe we are now ready to branch out and are so proud to announce our partnership with the Matt Hampson Foundation. Their truly inspiring mission is to support those seriously injured through sport. We are pleased to be able to provide our premium wellness products as part of the fantastic programme they offer, aligning with our mission to keep people healthy, happy and active.”George Kruis, Co-Founder | Head of fourfive Network & Partnerships

The Matt Hampson Foundation inspires and supports young people seriously injured through sport through its unique Get Busy Living centre in rural Leicestershire. The centre provides expert physiotherapy, specialist personal training, support, mentoring and advice to people suffering a life-changing injury.The centre opened in 2018 and is the brainchild of founder and ex-England and Leicester Tigers rugby player Matt Hampson, who himself experienced a life-changing injury in 2005 leaving him paralysed from the neck down, aged just 20. The Matt Hampson Foundation helps people to recover and rebuild their lives following injury and get busy living again. By becoming part of the community that Matt has created, beneficiaries of the Foundation are able to draw on the experience and knowledge of people who have been on the same journey. They develop the tools and skills they need to move on as they start to rebuild their lives.
The centre becomes a place where they can be part of a strong and active social scene as they retrain themselves to focus on what they can do – not what they can’t. Eventually beneficiaries progress to the point where they become the ones providing the support to others. This in itself is a huge part of their rehabilitation and being able to help others provides a real sense of purpose and identity. The Foundation helps people get busy living again after a life-changing injury – whether it’s helping them get back into sport or supporting them in adapting to their new life.
