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.

purpose

Purpose:

The purpose of this activity was to increase awareness and engagement with the potential employment opportunities within racing to young people who would like to gain employment within the racing industry. Some of these learners are winter leavers (left school at 15 years old) and had extensive experience with horses/ racehorses. This training route enables people to get training and remain at home which in turn removes a barrier to success.
