House to house collections

You must apply to the council for a licence if you want to collect money or goods (that you plan to sell at a later date) from people’s homes for charity.

You must apply for a licence if you’re a:

  • small charity
  • local group, eg scouts, girl guides

You must apply 20 working days before you plan to start collecting. House to house collection licences are free, and can be valid for anything up to 1 year.

You must include the names of any people who will be collecting on behalf of the charity or organisation. These are known as the authorised collectors. You must include your own name if you’re planning to be an authorised collector.

If you don’t get a licence before starting house to house collections you could face:

  • up to 6 months in prison
  • a fine of up to £1,000
