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.
