Play today, transform tomorrow

Start playing our Weekly Lottery today and the money raised will go towards the vital work that help people with hearing loss – including support services, campaigning for equality and biomedical research.

We invest in developing treatments to protect and restore hearing and to silence tinnitus. We also work hard to find cures for those who want them.

This means for that for over 12 million people in the UK who are deaf and have hearing loss and the 1 in 7 adults in the UK who have tinnitus, there’s a greater chance for a better tomorrow.

How it works

Within 14 days of processing your entry, we’ll post you your unique lottery number/s and the date of the first draw to which you’ll be entered. You’ll also receive your unique lottery number/s by email.

How we spend the money raised

In 2022, £306,720 was raised from ticket sales in our Weekly Lottery and Superdraws, with 14.77% being spent on Prizes, 3.02% spent on Expenses and 82.21% was used to support deaf people and those with hearing loss and tinnitus across the UK. This translated to a fantastic £252,169.50! (Based on the Lottery Submissions made by RNID to the Gambling Commission, during the 2022 calendar year). Our Weekly Lottery is a fantastic way for us to grow our support as most of the remaining proceeds were re-invested into growing the number of people supporting our work, so that together, we can transform even more lives.
