Health Lottery Wales
Health Lottery Wales, formed from former CICs HealthControl, HealthDiverse and HealthExpect, aims to break through the £6 million milestone as its next funding milestone! The first Health Lottery Wales draw will take place on 1 May 2019.
In Wales, The Health Lottery is proud to have raised the necessary funding to support community development, social clubs and instruction in life skills. We have also raised funds to address issues of mental health and disability awareness. Some of these Welsh causes are:
- £32,419 to RainbowBiz CIC, whose Digging Deeside project supports people in Deeside, Flintshire who feel isolated to take part in community gardening activities
- £45,624 to Cardiff People First, who run social activities for people with learning disabilities in Cardiff and support them to engage with their local community
- £16,915 to Coffee and Laughs, whose interfaith friendship group in Newport provides a platform for local women to build their confidence and social connections
