Racing Victoria (RV) and the Australian Trainers’ Association (ATA) will today launch a Trainer Wellbeing Program to support industry participants.

The ATA and RV are committed to ensuring the Program addresses the wellbeing needs of trainers and stable employees and will hold a series of pilot workshops this September.

The pilot program will shape the long-term plan for the Trainer Wellbeing Program where ATA and RV will enlist independent experts to address a range of areas on health and wellbeing including physical health, exercise and nutrition; stress and fatigue; and effective business management.

The pilot program will focus on mental health with the ATA and RV engaging beyondblue to undertake four workshops across Victoria.

The workshops will provide a unique opportunity for trainers, their employees and their families to share experiences and obtain expert information on mental health.

The Trainer Wellbeing Program aligns with RV and ATA’s ongoing commitment to the welfare of the thoroughbred racing industry’s participants to maintain a sustainable future for the sport.

RV Chief Executive, Bernard Saundry, said, “RV is proud to partner with the ATA to launch the Trainer Wellbeing Program and demonstrate our commitment to the health and wellbeing of Victorian trainers, their employees and families.”

ATA Chief Executive, John Alducci said, “Forming the partnership with RV to launch the Trainer Wellbeing Program forms an integral part of the ATA’s objective to represent Australian horse trainers’ best interests and provide members with access to professional advice and support.”

Two of Australia’s most respected horse trainers, John Sadler and Lee Freedman, will be involved in the pilot workshops to share stories of their experiences with participants.

To ensure trainers, stable employees and their families from across Victoria can participate in the pilot program, the workshops will be held in four different locations:

· Bendigo Racecourse – Friday, 12 September from 10.00am – 11.30am

· Flemington Racecourse – Monday, 15 September from 10.00am – 11.30am

· Ballarat Racecourse – Thursday, 18 September from 10.00am – 11.30am

· Cranbourne Racecourse – Friday, 19 September from 10.00am – 11.30am

The pilot workshops provide an opportunity for participants to learn more about how to support a friend, a colleague or a family member with the challenges they may be facing in a supportive, safe and confidential environment.

The feedback obtained during the pilot program will be assessed independently by beyondblue to form part of a long-term plan for the Trainer Wellbeing Program.
