Racing Welfare is a registered charity supporting the workforce of British horseracing.

We offer professional guidance and practical help to all the racing 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.

They provided immediate care, making sure I had credit on my phone for emergencies, and making sure I had money so we could eat, but it was the aftercare that made the real difference.

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.
