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.

Programme Highlight

All of the race day meet ups and stable visits that have allowed people with challenges in life the opportunity to either go racing, or have hands on, sensory experiences by meeting racehorses at racing yards. #GoRacingGreen works with racecourses to introduce small changes and additions around the site which can help those with invisible illnesses enjoy a race at the races. These include sensory guides and invisible access statements that aide those potential new racegoers in deciding whether to even venture out to racecourses in the first place. Currently the community element of the project is supported by Unibet racing.
