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.

Betfair Racing Staff Week in conjunction with Racing Welfare

Racing Staff Week once again aims to bring the racing industry together to inform and engage horseracing followers and supporters about the passion, skill and dedication required to work in racing, and also to increase awareness about the support and services that Racing Welfare provides to all of racing’s workforce. This year’s Racing Staff Week builds on the success of the first two years and will deliver another week of activities that will celebrate the role of racing staff and put them in the spotlight.
