The National Lottery Heritage Fund (previously known as The Heritage Lottery Fund) only gives funding in response to grant applications. We do not operate a lottery, award prizes or distribute money in any other way.
If you receive a message (for example via email or social media) telling you that you have won a prize or can receive money from us without submitting an application to our portal, it has not come from us. Neither The Heritage Fund or the UK National Lottery owns, or is associated with, any lottery that asks for payment in order to claim a prize.
Some pay-to-claim lotteries are regarded by the Metropolitan Police or the Gaming Board of Great Britain as being fraudulent. If you would like further information, please contact the Metropolitan Police by email or visit the Metropolitan Police Service website.
Please exercise caution and do not part with your money or details to an unknown party or company. Be sure to check the organisation’s legal status first.
