Supporting our communities

Good causes

Net proceeds are available for distribution to worthy causes and local charities. £3m is raised every year and distributed to a range of community projects. All proceeds from the Channel Islands Lottery are distributed to worthy causes throughout the Islands. The Lottery has supported hundreds of local charities and provided funding for essential community services and activities. Millions have been raised over the last few years and through grant schemes. In both islands, charities have been able to access substantial and consistent funding.

Essential disability and health services such as the Guernsey and Jersey Cheshire Homes, St John's Ambulance Jersey, Les Bourgs Hospice in Guernsey and Jersey Hospice Care, are regular beneficiaries along with welfare charities such as the Guernsey Voluntary Service, Autism Jersey and Autism Guernsey, Jersey Alzheimer’s Association and MS Society Guernsey.

The CI Lottery also provides grant funding for many other community based Charities and projects along with larger grants for community events such as the 2021 Island Games, Liberation Day celebrations and Jersey’s iconic Battle of Flowers.

Jersey Heritage

Jersey Heritage is another recent beneficiary of The Lottery. Dedicated to telling the story of Jersey’s history, they manage several key historic sites across the island, including castles, museums and the neolithic site at La Hougue Bie. The funding went towards developing a Memory Box app which helps islanders suffering from dementia to socialise by reminiscing about Jersey in years gone by.


The Lottery has also given financial support to WetWheels Jersey, a charity that enables every disabled person the chance to experience the excitement of power-boating. Their boats are fully accessible, allowing anyone to take the helm as skipper, on their frequent island cruises, fishing trips and dolphin-spotting trips.

Guernsey Cheshire Home

£73,000 of proceeds from the 2022 Lottery was granted to the Guernsey Cheshire Home to fund the salary of a key staff member for two years. The Home has one aim: to provide care and opportunity for people with serious physical disabilities in as close to a family atmosphere as possible.
