The current operator of the National Lottery, Camelot, publish National Lottery sales data three months in arrears broken down by game type on their website. Sales data broken down to regional or constituency level is not published due to commercial sensitivities.

Information on National Lottery funding awards up to January 2018 is held on a publicly available database which allows searches to be made for good cause grants in each region and constituency within specific timeframes.

We expect to update the database with grant information from January 2018 to March 2020 later this Spring.
