Charitable house to house collections

Under the terms of the House to House Collections Act 1939 and House to House Collections Regulations 1947, an institution or an individual must have a licence from the Council if they want to carry out charitable house to house, or door to door, collections.

You won't need a licence if you have a valid exemption certificate.

*When you submit an application you will need to send us a copy of your Covid-19 risk assessment (licensing.specialists@southsomerset.gov.uk). This will be shared with Environmental Health.*

Thank you. You response is appreciated.
