If you are planning to collect money on the street or going from house to house to raise money for charity you will need to have either a street collections permit or a house to house collections licence.
- House to house collections are where people collect money or other goods such as clothes and bric-a-brac for charity by going from house to house, including public houses and places of business.
- There is no charge for the licence
- After the collection you must complete a form telling the Council how much money you collected and if any money was deducted for expenses.
- Unsuccessful applicants for a House to House Collections Licence can appeal to the Minister for the Cabinet Office and this should be sent to the Office for Civil Society, Cabinet Office, 2nd Floor, Admiralty Arch, South Side The Mall, London SW1A, within 14 days from the date of the refusal notice.
These forms have been updated in accordance with the Charities Act 2006 (Commencement Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 4, Transitional Provisions and Savings Orders) 2007 and 2008.
Please read the accompanying Criteria and Guidance notes before submitting an application for a House to House Collection.
