Volunteer today for racing charities!

Charities working across the sport are frequently in need of valuable support from volunteers – on an ongoing basis or just to support a particular event.

Volunteering is a great way to help the causes you support, and can even boost your CV and help you make new friendships.

Annual Racing Together/RCA Community Engagement Audit Survey Launched

To help best support the needs of racecourses through the Racing Together partnership, the important process of gathering annual updates from colleagues is now underway.

Racecourses now have the chance to complete the 2020 community engagement audit survey to share details of their activity helping others over the past year. Racecourse teams are often surprised by how much they have done to help their communities on reflection.

Questions include:

  • Does your racecourse have an established community and CSR programme?
  • Is there a specified member of staff on your racecourse team responsible for community engagement?
  • How many of your staff volunteered in 2019 as part of a work-encouraged scheme?

Distributed kindly this week by the Racecourse Association on behalf of Racing Together, the audit results once collated will form a wider picture of racing’s nationwide social impact.
