Helen Wilson

Welfare Officer

Helen Wilson : Welfare Officer

My role as a Welfare Officer covers Scotland and The North of England. I have a long history of working in welfare within the racing industry, working as an Almoner for the Injured Jockeys Fund for 17yrs and now joining the Racing Welfare team to continue the rewarding and important work that supports everyone in this wonderful sporting industry.

Having worked and breathed horses all my life from Pony Club, Eventing, RORs and breeding I was destined to be involved in racing and all the connections that are associated with this wonderful animal. It is definitely a lifestyle that most people who work in racing wouldn’t change, Racing Welfare helps and supports everyone through the rocky patches so they can continue to stay in this great industry.
