Community TAB is responsible for upholding the CSR of RWWA. Community TAB is the brand that was created in November 2014 to package up and promote all of the funding provided to the WA community from the TAB. In the 2014/15 financial year, $145million is put back into the community from the TAB each year into the industries of racing, sport and not-for-profit organisations. Communicating this contribution to the WA community ensures that stakeholders are aware of RWWA upholding it’s CSR to the community in which it operates, now and in the past.
