Charity collections

If you want to collect for charity on the street or house-to-house you must have the correct permit/licence.

You should contact the Licensing Team to discuss available dates before applying to collect for a charity on the street or house-to-house. We only allow one charity to collect per day to avoid public annoyance and to give charities a fair chance of making a reasonable collection. You need to apply at least 28 days before the intended collection date.

You can then complete:

When you submit your application, you must also provide a current criminal record disclosure. This can be obtained via the GOV.UK - Request a basic DBS check service.

returns form (PDF) [76KB] (opens new window)  should be completed detailing an account of the collection.  This should be provided to the Licensing Authority within one month of the expiry of the licence.
