Please read our information about small society lotteries before you apply.

How to apply

If your non-commercial society wants to run a small society lottery you'll need to register this with us.

You'll need to fill in an application form and send this to us. 

You'll need to know:

  • the details of the society applying and whether they are a registered charity
  • if the society has held an operating licence or had an operating licence refused or revoked 
  • contact details for correspondence

What you'll need to do after the lottery

You'll need to fill in and send to us a lottery return form after every draw has taken place giving an account of the monies raised.  You'll need to give this to us no later than three months after every draw. 

This statement must be signed by two members of the society who are appointed for the purpose in writing by the society, or if it has one, its governing body. These persons must be an adult.

You'll need to send us a copy of the written appointment with this statement.
