The BHA’s whistleblowing policy outlines the procedure by which any individual involved at any level of the sport of horseracing, including employees of the BHA, can report or blow the whistle on concerns relating to the running of the BHA or the actions or activities of its employees, officials, directors or members of BHA committees or industry committees administered by the BHA. It is designed to work in conjunction with other policies to protect anyone involved in British racing, whether as a participant or otherwise, from potential wrongdoing.Read more

More broadly, the BHA believes that slavery and human trafficking have no place in horseracing. The BHA encourages the prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery across all areas of the industry.
The BHA operates the RaceWISE reporting line, aimed at encouraging both members of the public and the racing industry to come forward with information about any wrongdoing in the sport of horseracing, details can be found at: https://www.britishhorseracing.com/RaceWISE/ and reports can be made online or via 0800 085 2580.
Where any modern slavery concerns overlap with the welfare or harm or abuse of young people or adults at risk, reporting concerns to the BHA’s Lead Safeguarding Manager via [email protected] may be more appropriate.Visit site
