The new Queensland Racing Industry Support Program (QRISP) is part of the Licensees Assistance Association and offers emotional and financial support to those working in the thoroughbred racing industry.

Through injury or misfortune, QRISP try and assist in ways to get them back on their feet, and most importantly show them that their industry cares about them.

QRISP is always looking for ways to help all our industry people throughout Queensland, not just when there is a desperate need.

Boosting morale and enhancing the well-being of our people is also one of their goals, encouraging participants to enjoy things aways from racing for both themselves and their families.

When QRISP is made aware of racing industry participants in need, they can step in with whatever assistance available – usually financial help.

It might be as simple as paying an electricity or rent bill for someone doing it tough, to paying the funeral costs for someone who has spent their life in the industry and has no-one else to help. 

Further, the QRISP holiday unit at Caloundra offers racing participants a beach getaway with their families at a hugely reduced cost, without the usual hassles and conditions. 

Although the unit is extremely helpful as respite to those in need, it can also be enjoyed by all racing participants as a way to encourage and promote better well-being and family relationships, enhancing industry longevity.
