Funds raised for good causes
Published: August 2022
Reporting Period: Quarter 1, 2022 to 2023 (April to June)
Since its launch in November 1994, the National Lottery has raised over £46 billion for good causes that include sports (including Olympic athletes), arts and heritage, as well as health, education and the environment.
Funds are raised from the sale of National Lottery games and supplemented by items such as unclaimed prizes. The funds for good causes are held in the National Lottery Distribution Fund (NLDF).
The Commission ensures that payments from the Lottery operator to good causes (which are held in the National Lottery Distribution Fund) are accurate and on time.
