About Us

Over 220,000 children in Scotland struggle daily with the effects of poverty - whether that’s being hungry, being cold, or having no home of their own.

We know we can’t change that by ourselves, but what we can do is help.

Chance to Flourish is driven by a desire to make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable children across Scotland. Through our work with charities and communities, and through the grants we distribute, it’s our mission to invest in projects that provide effective early years intervention for those in need.

We believe that no baby born into poverty should be left behind. With our help, the detrimental effects that hunger, cold and illness have on a child’s development can be reduced.

Chance to Flourish is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO number: SC046177).

Our Other Lottery Charities

We’re one of four new independent charities across Scotland that operate as a society lottery under the Scottish Children’s Lottery umbrella brand. Each charity benefits from the financial distributions made by the scheme.


The good causes of the charities will be supported from funds generated from the Scottish Children’s Lottery, which operates in weekly rotation both in the name, and for the benefit of, each separate charity in turn.

Like Chance to Flourish, the other charities benefitting from the initiative also have a focus on child welfare and alleviating the impact of poverty on young Scottish lives.
