Charitable collections

You must apply for a licence to collect money or donations or sell items for charitable purposes either door-to-door or on the street.

A house to house collection licence permits you to collect money door-to-door, while a street collection licence allows you to collect money or sell items for charity on the street and in public places – for example, a shop doorway or carpark.

The purpose of these licences is to prevent fraud and ensure that genuine charities benefit from such collections.

Please email to confirm if a charity has been granted a collections licence in our district.
