Making a real difference

Thanks to you playing The Health Lottery, over £130m has been raised for good causes. The money raised is used to give grants to thousands of small charities doing vital work at local level. They support the health and well-being of people living in some of the most disadvantaged communities in Great Britain right now. 

There are brilliant charities doing great work all over Scotland, Wales and England, tackling loneliness, building communities, supporting disability, helping minds and people of all ages to get active and creative. 

We love hearing about these projects and the difference they make to people’s lives. It’s truly inspiring to us, and we hope you agree. 

Here are some of their stories.
