The Injured Jockeys Fund
Compassion. Care. Support
The Injured Jockeys Fund was the brainchild of founding Trustee and past President John Oaksey and came about following the devastating accidents of Tim Brookshaw and four months later Paddy Farrell in the 1964 Grand National. Both falls resulted in severe paralysis which immediately ended both their careers.
Oaksey House provides specialist rehabilitation treatment for physical and neurological injuries, and respite accommodation.
Jack Berry House in Malton, was opened in 2015. It is a state-of-the-art rehabilitation and fitness centre for northern based jockeys.
Peter O’Sullevan House, the Injured Jockeys Fund’s third rehabilitation and fitness centre in Newmarket, Suffolk will open in 2019.
