NCVO welcomes the opportunity for MPs to debate society lotteries. Lotteries are a valuable source of income for charities. Funding supports innovative and grassroots projects that have a huge impact on the communities involved, and which might not have otherwise found funding. In addition, society lottery funding is mainly unrestricted, which means it can be used in any way that helps achieve an organisation’s charitable purposes.

NCVO supports the aim of ensuring that lotteries are able to thrive and deliver the maximum benefit to good causes. We also support greater transparency in society lotteries.

This briefing covers the obligations charities have when reporting their accounts, and what to look for when reading them.
