Join our lottery for £1 a ticket and we raise 50p straight away!
We want more people to hear about Shared Lives and support us to keep doing the amazing work supporting our Members, so we have joined Unity Lottery who help raise money for our charity. For every £1 ticket supporters buy, we receive 50p. The other 50p is split between the prize money and Unity’s admin costs. 

If you would rather give us 50p every week instead of joining the lottery, please ring 0151 227 3499 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we’ll soon have a donate button on our website!

The Unity Lottery draw takes place every Saturday, and each ticket gives players the chance of winning one of four fantastic prizes. Each entry costs just £1.

How do I buy lottery tickets?
You can set up a lottery subscription which is the easiest way to ensure you’re entered into the draw each week,  Or you can phone Unity who run the lottery for us and thousands of other charities, on 0370 050 9240 to buy a ticket by cheque/credit card.

What can I win?
The Unity lottery prize structure is based on a 6 digit number match, in the correct sequence, as follows:

3 digit match = 5 entries into the next draw
4 digit match = £25
5 digit match = £1,000
6 digit match = £25,000

Can I choose my lottery numbers?
These are chosen randomly and will be your numbers for the duration of your membership of our lottery. When you enter the lottery, you will be sent your unique numbers.

Can I have more than one entry?
Yes. Each £1 entry buys you one ‘chance’ of winning in the lottery. In accordance with our commitment to responsible gambling, we offer a maximum of 20 entries each month per person.

£1/week = 1 chance to win and 50p goes straight to Shared Lives Plus

£2/week  = 2 chances to win and £1 goes straight to Shared Lives Plus

£3/week = 3 chances to win and £1.50 goes straight to Shared Lives Plus

What are the odds of winning a prize?
The odds of winning any prize in Unity is 1 in 63. Everyone in Unity has an equal chance of winning, no matter which charity they support or how many players that charity has. This is one of the main benefits for us of joining a scheme like Unity.

Can you guarantee the lottery is fair?
Yes, every entry has an equal chance of winning, and the winning numbers are drawn at random. It could be you!
