Tackling health inequalities

Health Lottery Scotland exists to tackle health inequalities. It raises money to help reduce health inequalities in Scotland. It does this by running a society lottery and working collaboratively with independent charity, People's Health Trust, to develop local interventions.

We donate the good causes funds we raise to People's Health Trust, who invests these in communities wishing to make their neighbourhoods even better places to grow, live, work and age.


This grant making trust funds local people who have great ideas about how they can make their neighbourhoods even better places to grow, live, work and age.
