Some of the ways we can support you

Welcome to Racing Welfare

Racing Welfare is the only charity that supports all people who work in racing – stud, stable and support staff; from their recruitment right through to retirement and beyond. Our support is available to everyone working in the thoroughbred and arab racing industries, including point-to-point racing.

Racing Welfare’s services are nationally accessible with offices in the main racing centres (Newmarket, Lambourn, Middleham, Malton and Epsom) and roving Welfare Officers covering the whole of the country. Racing’s Support Line, our multi-channel helpline is available 24 hours a day and you can get advice through our online support pages.

The people behind Racing Welfare

Everyone at Racing Welfare including our team of staff members, trustees and our ambassadors is passionate about the British horseracing and breeding industries. Many of our members of staff come from a strong horseracing background having had previous experience working on racing yards, studs and racecourses. Our Board of Trustees are also key racing supporters with many being involved as owners, breeders or amateur jockeys.
