The Racing Foundation has awarded a grant of just over £62,000 to Racing Welfare to commission a mental health research project that will assess the racing industry’s specific mental health requirements. This research will be conducted by Liverpool John Moore’s University will full support of the British Horseracing Authority and will take place over the course of a year, commencing this September.
The study will fully assess the mental health and wellbeing of the workforce, its needs and the required service provision in the horseracing industry, on a national basis. The findings of the study will be used to aid Racing Welfare in the development of its mental health support services as well as contributing to the racing industry’s wider mental health strategy. The study will make recommendations regarding a holistic mental health service to be made available on fully-accessible and national basis for everyone working within the horseracing industry.
