We have a national network of Welfare Officers based in regional officesOur 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.

The charity was founded and registered in 2000.

Racing Welfare was formed as an amalgamation of several racing charities, with the aim of ensuring that the racing industry had a single charity responsible for the wellbeing of its current and former employees, and their dependents.



Racing Welfare is constituted as a company limited by guarantee, with The Jockey Club as the sole member.
