About us

The Health Lottery is not a national lottery. It is 12 local society lotteries each one representing several local authority areas across Great Britain. Each society lottery is licensed by the Gambling Commission and will raise money for health related good causes within their respective areas. Each local society lottery takes turns at participating in the draw so that every area in England, Scotland and Wales gets an appropriate share of the monies raised. Details of when each society lottery is running are shown below followed by a map of each of all of the society lotteries.

12 Societies

The Health Lottery operates on behalf of 12 Community Interest Companies (CICs), managing 12 society lotteries in rotation and running this lottery website.  Each represents a different region or country covering the whole of Great Britain.  Every month a different region benefits from all of the Health Lottery draws that take place, supporting local grassroots projects and charities.

The 12 CICs are listed below:
