DCMS is aware of the wide range of good causes, which receive funding from society lotteries. The Gambling Commission licences society lotteries, on the proviso that these are promoted for the benefit of a non-commercial society; for example for charitable purposes or for the purpose of enabling participation in or supporting sporting or cultural activities. Details about licensed society lotteries can be found on the Commission's website:
