How does the lottery work?
The Family Fund lottery is a way of supporting our work, for just £1 per ticket.
Once players register, they will receive a unique 6-digit number which will be entered into each weekly draw. Every Friday, six numbers are selected at random. If players match three or more numbers in the correct sequence, they will win one of the prizes on offer:
- Match 6 numbers for £25,000
- Match 5 numbers for £1,000
- Match 4 numbers for £25
- Match 3 numbers for 5 free entries in the next draw.
The chance of winning any prize is 1 in 63.
We are committed to ensuring our lottery activity is operated in a fair and socially responsible way. You can seek advice and support from BeGambleAware or from the National Gambling Helpline on 0808 8020 133.
By playing the Family Fund Lottery today you can help us provide life-line support to parents and carers, when they need it most: When you win, our families win too!
How does the lottery make a difference to families raising disabled children?
Families pay three times higher costs to care for their disabled child and face severely reduced income due to the round-the-clock care and support they provide.
From essential items like kitchen appliances or clothing, to travel to hospital appointments, much-needed family breaks and in-depth information and support, we aim to reduce the financial pressures of raising a disabled child and make life easier.
Why your support matters
Nine in ten families with a disabled child are falling behind on their household bills. Four in five are unable to replace living essentials such as a fridge or a bed. Over half of parents and carers are skipping meals because there isn’t enough food for the whole family.*
Today, the need for Family Fund’s support is greater than ever with a 135% increase in first-time applications since pre-pandemic levels. And we know this demand will continue to grow.Read families stories here and see why your support matters.
About our lottery
Players need to be 18 or over to enter our lottery. You can see our lottery rules here.
We are one of a number of charities whose lottery is externally managed by Unity. All supporters contribute to the prize pot by entering and everyone has an equal chance of winning, which is how we can offer a £25,000 jackpot.
From each £1 lottery entry, Family Fund receives a minimum of 50%. The remaining 50% is split between covering administration costs (32%) and the prize fund (18%).
