In the United Kingdom according to the statistics, the pounds raised by spending money on lottery so far has been utilized in nearly 280, 000 smaller and larger projects.

But there is a method and procedure for how that money is spent it doesn't go straight into the hands of the monitors of the projects. For example, Camelot recently was appointed as National Lottery Commission to run Lottery from 2009 to 2019.

There goes unbelievable 28 pence from each pond spent on lottery towards social cause. The 28 pence from a single pond spent of lottery goes into a pool which is looked after by the Government Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). This department also looks after the National Lottery Policy and the framework within which Lottery funders work.

However, it is not in discretion of DCMS to decide upon how money has to distribute among organizations and sectors but by 14 organizations that are in charge of departments like art, heritage, sport, community and voluntary organizations each having expertise knowledge of its area.

A project seeking a lottery grant needs to apply to particular department with proper planned application to get an aid in the sector it is working for. The application falling into in any one of the sector catered by 14 departments if gets go ahead, the aid is provided in installments with a close vigil towards the project from the lottery fund.

For example National Lottery Sports Funding is one such scheme regulated by the one such body Sport England to support and aid sport organizations and sport activities in England. Under the head, the funds which are used for joint distributor's award are also diverted into two major funds. Communities Projects Capital Funds are directed towards the equipment projects costing over £5,000 top motivate young people, women, people on low incomes, sport persons from ethnic communities.

The other scheme is Active Communities Development Fund to help people from the low-income groups, people with disabilities, women and girls and people from ethnic minority to raise standard of their life. The amount in this is for the projects required sum between £5,000 and £30,000 a year for up to five years. For restrain the aid seekers should have certain amount of their own or proof that they had applied in past for seeking aid at places. During the Manchester Commonwealth Games there £112 million were invested from Sport England Lottery Fund to develop and construct sport facilities in the country. This is only an example how a lottery funding contribute to the social cause of society.
