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.

"A massive thank you to the NTF. It was a wonderful surprise to receive funds from your Benevolent Fund, something I never realised existed until recently. It removed the immediate stress from my situation and meant I could concentrate on recovery without worrying about the financial strain my situation had put on the business. Thank goodness you were there to help at a time I desperately need it." A beneficiary.

This 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)
Originally part of the Racing Industry Disablement Benefit Scheme the pension was separated into the SEPP when the Jockey Club handed over the administration of the trust to the NTF. Contributions were paid by the employer for each employee from the age of 27 years with at least 5 years work in the industry. The scheme is administrated by Winterbourne Trustee Services Ltd and closed to contributions in 2001. The Stakeholder Scheme was then arranged with Friends Life (now Aviva.) In April 2018 this scheme was replaced by employer statutory auto-enrolment schemes.
