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.

Scottish Racing

Programme Highlight

The Scottish Racing commitment to Alzheimer Scotland. The partnership directly compliments the Scottish National Dementia strategy by maintaining a focus on improving the quality of care for people living with dementia and their families through workforce development; data and information; and fundraising for research. Crucially, within this established partnership, there is a recognition of the importance of taking a person-centred approach to providing support to people living with dementia and their carers. The partnership promotes and supports the aim that people can live well in their dementia-friendly and dementia-enabled communities and horse racing organisations. Another major development of 2019, is that Scottish Racing were successful in gaining funds to establish a sister organisation purely focused on community and education - the Scottish Racing Academy.
