Making a difference with the Scottish Children's Lottery

We believe that every child deserves the best start in life, whatever their family’s circumstances.

That’s why we’ve made it our mission to make a real difference to the lives of children in Scotland and when you play our lottery, you’re helping us do just that!

Our players have helped us raise over £8 million for children in Scotland so far, with funding reaching projects as near as Glasgow and as far as the Western Isles.

Through The Scottish Children’s Lottery Trust, we support a wide variety of charities and good causes who are providing help to children and communities who need it most.

Visit The Scottish Children’s Lottery Trust website to find out more about how your plays benefit young people in Scotland and how your charity can apply for funding.
