Racing Welfare

We offer professional guidance and practical help to all of racing’s people – including stud, stable and racecourse staff, alongside those working in associated professions – whose dedication is vital for the wellbeing of racing. Our work aims to help people, from recruitment to retirement, to thrive in day to day life and through a range of life’s challenges.

We have a national network of welfare officers based in regional offices. Our head office is in Newmarket.
We support current and retired racing staff, and their families. Our work is dependent on donations and successful fundraising activities. Racing Homes is our housing association. It provides a limited amount of subsidised accommodation to those who meet the criteria.

Our mission
Our mission is to enhance the wellbeing of people from the horseracing and thoroughbred breeding community, by providing enabling and proactive support throughout and after their working lives.

Our vision
Our vision is that everyone from the horseracing and breeding industry and community feels supported and has the opportunity to thrive.

Information for volunteers

We are operating a 'Check in and Chat service' to beneficiaries of the charity to:

• give the person(s) some social interaction and emotional support through conversation
• stay connected with the organisation and feedback any concerns, that may need addressing
