Licence to collect money for a charity

You must have a licence to collect money for a registered charity on streets or house-to-house.

Street collections

A licence is required for general street collections for a registered charity. Sponsored walks do not need to be licensed but 'moving collections' such as carnival processions and events which involve collecting from the public along a route will require a permit.

Find out more and apply for a street collection licence. There is no fee for this application.

Only 1 collection may take place on any one day in any one location in Harborough district. You can check if the date you want to make your collection is available by contacting us at licensing@harborough.gov.uk

Your application will be processed within 10 working days.

Following a collection you must tell us the donations that you have received.

House-to-house collections

A licence is required to undertake collections from door-to-door or from one public house to another.

You must be a registered charity to perform a house to house collection.
