Tasracing Employment Assistance Program expansion to industry

Monday 22 February 2021

Tasracing has transitioned its Employee Assistance Program from Relationships Australia to Positive Solutions.

The following is an outline of the services provided by the new EAP:

Scope of services

Employees and their immediate family are encouraged to utilise the confidential service for up to two (2) counselling sessions (sessions are 1-hour maximum) per calendar year, or more as approved on a case by case basis.

Changes have recently been made to the scope of services and we are pleased to announce that the following racing industry personnel can now also access the program for up to two (2) counselling sessions each calendar year:

  • All licensed participants;
  • staff members of all racing and pacing clubs in Tasmania’s racing industry;
  • veterinarians engaged by Tasracing to work at race events; and
  • volunteers working in Tasracing’s ‘Off The Track’ initiative, and Greyhound Adoption Program.

Contact details

Please contact the toll-free number: 1800 064 039 or admin@positivesolutions.com.au to make a booking or enquire further about the program.


Counselling offices are located in Hobart, Burnie, Devonport and Launceston. Sessions are flexible and can be held face to face, via phone or online, whichever format is going to be most comfortable to you.


Tasracing has 24/7 access to our EAP, which is of huge value as many of our industry participants don’t work within normal business hours.

Existing clients

If you are currently accessing support through Relationships Australia, your program will continue until its natural completion. It is important that you maintain continuity of care with the counsellor you have been working with.
