Benefit from our combined size, resources and knowledge.

The HLA is a network of 130 UK-based hospices, working together to help each other.

What is the Hospice Lotteries Association?

Helping to achieve mutual success for all our members

The Hospice Lotteries Association was established to help those hospices which operate lotteries to share information and benefit from each other’s experiences

Our Aim

  • Promote its members hospice lotteries.
  • Encourage best practice and compliance with relevant legislation.
  • Provide mutual support through the sharing of knowledge and experience.
  • Provide representation of its members to the Lotteries Council and to any other governing or legislative bodies.
  • Keep members up-to-date with industry legislation, codes of practice and standards.
  • Receive representations from industry suppliers, to ensure that members are aware of the latest technologies and innovations.
  • Present a united body of opinion on matters relating to hospice lotteries when requested to do so or as necessary.
  • Provide increased credibility to its members.

Working Together

Working together all members can operate more successful lotteries – benefiting themselves and those who support us.

We meet regularly – our calendar currently includes two members’ meetings each year, one training session and one annual conference.

We play an active role in the industry and have a strong relationship with industry bodies such as The Lotteries Council and the Gambling Commission.

Our members also benefit from legal representation – all members of the Hospice Lotteries Association benefit from IBAS coverage, for when independent arbitration may be required.

We welcome new members and hope that other hospices will join with us, to share their experiences and to help achieve mutual success for all.
