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.
Street Collections are collections on the street or in any public place, including supermarkets. This includes selling goods for charity.
Applications should be made at least one month before the proposed date of the collection
There is no charge for the permit
You will need to also gain the permission of the supermarket
You must have a properly sealed container to collect money in and identification
After the collection you must complete a form telling the Council how much money you collected and if any money was deducted for expenses.
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 Criteria and Guidance notes before submitting an application for a Street or House to House Collection.
