Racing Welfare may be able to assist eligible individuals who are in need with a grant. Grants can be awarded for a variety of goods or services that will aid someone’s wellbeing and/or improve circumstances in difficult times.
This list is not exhaustive and if you are unsure if we can help then please get in touch and we can arrange for a Welfare Officer to call to discuss your needs in more detail.
Apply for a grant using the Lightning Reach portal.
This platform is provided by our trusted partner, Lightning Reach, a social impact startup which uses secure technology to make the application process as quick and safe as possible for you.
If you have ever held a Jockey’s licence in the UK and have not already spoken with a welfare officer, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org before starting the application process.
A simple 3 step process
Once your application has been made a welfare officer will be in touch as soon as possible, this is usually within 7 days.
The profile you create on the Lightning Reach portal can also help you to find and apply for support from other support organisations easily and securely. We recommend that you submit your application to Racing Welfare first before submitting applications to other organisations.
For help with completing your application, visit Lightning Reach Support and search for ‘Racing Welfare’.
