Application for Assistance

How to Apply

We aim to support all current and former jockeys and their families if faced with financial difficulties due to illness or injury, however we recognise that not everyone's circumstances are the same and some my need more assistance than others.

In order for us to better understand you, your needs and how we are best placed to assist you, we ask for specific information and documentation to assess your request.
