Life - there's a lot to juggle. Work, family, relationships, finances, health, the list goes on. Sometimes, meeting the demands of your work and personal life can be a real challenge.

    Horse Racing Ireland recognises this and has provided you with an Industry Assistance Programme (IAP) to help take the strain when you need some extra support. Your IAP is 100% confidential and 100% free to use and can save you time, and help reduce stress and anxiety, improving your well-being and freeing you up to focus on other things.

    Your IAP is staffed by a team of highly trained and qualified professionals who are experts in fields such as well-being, family matters, relationships, workplace issues, consumer rights, and much more. You can be confident that the information you receive is accurate, up-to-date, and relevant to your particular circumstances.
