Racing Mates To Host Dubbo Morning Tea Get-Together TODAY (Monday 7 May)

Racing industry participants in the Central and Western Racing Districts are invited to attend the next Racing Mates Morning Tea ‘Get-together’. The morning tea will be held in the Members Lounge of Dubbo Racecourse on Monday 7 May.

Racing Mates is a peer support initiative that was established by Racing NSW in 2016, empowering mates to look out for mates. The peer support group has held several morning teas and workshops previously across New South Wales.

Tamworth Jockey Club hosted the first Racing Mates get-together for 2018 on 27 February and the event was a resounding success: “Our first get-together at Tamworth was a great success,” said Racing Mates Ambassador, Pat Webster.

“We bring members of the racing community together over a cuppa and some morning tea to have a chat, and, that’s what it’s all about – lending your ear to others to discuss any problems they may be having. There is nothing better than talking to someone who understands where you’re coming from.”

Effective support offered from peers and colleagues can aid significantly in coping with stress and difficult situations. People are often more likely to initially reach out to a trusted peer or colleague for support when in need.

Racing Mates has appointed several Ambassadors across NSW that are available as a port of call when industry participants are in need of a mate. The Ambassadors possess a wealth of industry knowledge allowing them to relate to multifaceted concerns people may be experiencing. Industry-specific expertise combined with accredited training ensures Ambassadors can provide a crucial link between those in need and the required support.

The Dubbo morning tea will be held from 10am at Dubbo Racecourse on Merrilea Road, Dubbo on Monday 7 May. The Dubbo morning tea coincides with Dubbo Turf Club’s ‘Lifeline Boys Day Out’ race meeting which will be held the previous day, Sunday 6 May.

The special race meeting recognises men’s mental health issues, which is proudly supported by Racing Mates, along with Black Dog, Blue Elephant, Headspace, Men of League and Lifeline.

For further information contact Pat Webster on 0418 644 955. Further information about Racing Mates and it’s Ambassadors can be found at online at www.racingmates.com.au
