Autism Awareness Workshop

Share This Post

An Autism Awareness workshop will be held at the Peter O’Sullevan House in Newmarket on Monday the 4th March from 6-9pm. With a great range of speakers, it is the perfect opportunity to learn how horseracing offers Autism Friendly race days and jobs for people with Autism.

This three hour evening event is essential for jockeys, trainers, racecourse staff and anyone who works in racing to understand more about autism. Autism in Racing are encouraging people from the racing sector to embrace racegoers and employee more people with autism who have so much to give. It just takes a little time-out to understand how best to support people with autism.

This is a safe space to listen to people with lived experience and experts to whom you can ask the questions you never dared ask, bust some myths and learn about how racing can help. Employing someone with autism or providing spaces at racecourses can seem daunting but there is support there for you too.
