Once we receive your application, we will:
- review your application within 14 days
- notify you of our decision
- inform you of how you should carry out the collection, and what you need to do afterwards
- inform you of where you should publish a statement about your collection
If you carry out a street collection without a permit, you could receive a fine of up to £200.
In some circumstances, such as national disasters or global appeals, we can process collection applications more quickly. You can contact us for further information.
