National Lottery good cause money is allocated by expert bodies at arm's length from Government, taking account of their own priorities and the need for equitable distribution. It is not linked to sales distribution and Government does not collate this information.

Data on ticket sales is a matter for Camelot, the National Lottery operator. Camelot releases detailed national sales information which can be found online at: Camelot does not release more granular sales data due to its commercially sensitive nature.

Information on projects in receipt of a Lottery award can be found on the National Lottery Grants Database at the following link; and from Lottery Distributors' own websites.
