Tackling health inequalities
Health Lottery South East exists to tackle health inequalities across South East England. It raises money to help reduce health inequalities its region. 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.
