Spotlight Sports Group (SSG), a world-leading technology, content and media company specialising in sports betting, has announced Autism In Racing as its first annual community partner, as part of the company’s wider Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts to promote volunteering and community outreach.

Founded in 2021 through the collaboration of broadcaster Bobby Beevers, Racing Together and the Racecourse Association, Autism In Racing was created to promote awareness and inclusivity within the industry for those diagnosed with autism. Since its creation, the organisation has overseen a number of initiatives in the sport such as the installation of permanent sensory rooms at Aintree, Cheltenham and Ascot, designed to provide a calm, quiet and safe environment in which to fully enjoy a day at the races.

Bobby Beevers, founder of Autism In Racing, said: “I’m absolutely delighted that Autism In Racing will become the official community partner for Spotlight Sports Group. I look forward to working closely with them for the foreseeable future. We share the same passion for helping and supporting people with autism, which is brilliant. Together we will raise autism awareness across the sport.”

Simon Winder, group finance director and chair of the CSR working group at Spotlight Sports Group, said: “The CSR team were unanimous in their decision to support such an incredible organisation which aligns closely with our internal focus on diversity, equality and inclusivity and of course racing! We look forward to working with Bobby and the Autism In Racing team to raise awareness and funding.”
