Good Causes

The Health Lottery is committed to tackling the scourge of health inequality in Great Britain. We operate on behalf of 12 society lotteries, who work closely with People’s Health Trust to ensure that Health Lottery funds are granted to the grassroots causes that need it most.  

Thanks to our players, and the hard work of our retail partners, vital funds have been raised through The Health Lottery to support more than 2,800 health-related causes across England, Scotland and Wales.  Our owner pledged, on our inception in 2011, that hundreds of millions of pounds would be raised for these causes.  In 2018, that pledge became reality, with over £100 million raised in our company’s lifetime.

Below, you can read stories of the valuable work that these causes undertake in their communities.  Many of these causes – some of whom would not exist without funding raised by The Health Lottery – joined us for a celebratory reception in 2018 hosted by Simon Cowell.  Meeting these volunteers and charity workers was truly inspiring for us, and with your help, we can raise even more funds to support them.
