NTF Charities

Racehorse Trainers Benevolent Fund
The Racehorse Trainers Benevolent Fund (RTBF) awards grants to current or formerly licensed racehorse trainers in Britain. Grants are awarded for the relief of financial hardship due to exceptional events beyond the control of the applicant.

Examples include accident, illness, family breakdown, bereavement, animal disease and environmental factors. Grants may also be awarded to assist with welfare problems where the beneficiary could not afford to pay for that assistance.

Racing Industry Accident Benefit Scheme (RIABS)
Originally the Racing Industry Disablement Benefit Scheme incorporating the first stable lads pension scheme by the Jockey Club. When the two were separated RIABS was formed and the NTF acts as the Secretariat for the Trustees of RIABS. The bespoke self-funded scheme provides financial benefit for employees of a BHA licensed trainer who have suffered an accident during the course of their employment with a capital payment in the event of debilitating injury and or death.



Stable Employees Pension Scheme (SEPP)
This pension scheme was originally part of the Racing Industry Disablement Benefit Scheme and split when the Jockey Club handed over the administration of the trust to the NTF. Contributions were paid by the employer for each employee once they had worked in the industry for 5 years and were 27 years old. The scheme is now administrated by Winterbourne Trustee Services Ltd and was closed in 2001. After 2001 the new Stakeholder Scheme was set with Friends Life and this scheme is gradually being replaced by the statutory auto-enrolment schemes with individual employers. This scheme will close once all employers have auto-enrolled which is expected to be in April 2018.
