Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

 27 March 2020

Injured Jockeys Fund update during the Coronavirus


Lisa Hancock, CEO of the Injured Jockeys Fund, says:


“This is an unprecedented time of crisis for the whole country. The Injured Jockeys Fund is doing everything it can to continue to provide support for Jockeys and Beneficiaries whilst at home. We also realise that more people will need our support in the oncoming weeks and months, and therefore are re-allocating specific funds so that we are in a position to provide immediate help to those in urgent need.”

Support is available in the following ways: 


  • The three centres, Oaksey House in Lambourn, Jack Berry House in Malton and Peter O’Sullevan House in Newmarket are as of Monday 23rd March now closed, following the Governments health advice. They will be manned by skeleton staff. They will be offering remote support and advice to those requiring rehabilitation from recent injury or operation via telephone, email and Skype where possible. Fit and healthy individuals seeking advice will be supported by phone, skype and online. 
  • Longer term beneficiaries are being contacted proactively and regularly by phone by our network of regional Almoners so they can assist as necessary with their basic needs.
  • Those experiencing financial or mental health difficulties and those eligible for support from the IJF* during the next few months need to ring one of three centres in the first instance.

The Injured Jockeys Fund provides appropriate support in a prompt and sympathetic manner to those jockeys past or present who are injured, unable to ride, or generally in need





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.

Since then the Fund has helped over 1000 jockeys and their families and has paid out more than £18m in charitable assistance... more
