Awarding funds from The National Lottery® Olympic Lottery Distributor
UK 2012 Map
About us

The Olympic Lottery Distributor was an independent body set up by Parliament which used money raised by the National Lottery to fund the delivery of the infrastructure for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and their legacy.    

When making grants, we sought to ensure that the principles of a lasting legacy, environmental and social sustainability, as set out in the bid which won the Games for London, were put into practice. We were part of a family of organisations concerned with the funding of the Games and during our lifetime we grant funded the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA),  the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG), the East London Business Alliance (ELBA) and ICSEMIS 2012.  

We were open transparent in our work and remained a small and efficient organisation ­to ensure that the money which was raised by you was used used economically and to best effect.       

If you receive an email, letter or any form of correspondence using the Olympic Lottery Distributor's name or any of our Board Members/Staff names to tell you that you have won money, it will be a hoax and should be ignored.  To find out more see the end of our Privacy Policy (see Contact Us page of this website).  If you have been a victim of a scam you may wish to refer to the following website:
