Coronavirus guidance

The Fundraising Regulator has published guidance and resources to support charities, fundraising organisations and the public during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.


If you want to carry out a charitable street collection in East Devon you'll need to apply for a permit.


If you are busking to collect money for charity you will need to apply for a street collection permit

Direct debit collections

This Council has not signed up to the Institute of Fundraising Site Management Agreement, but we are happy to place any collection dates in our street collection diary and provide information about other bookings to avoid any potential clashes.

How to apply

You'll need to email us before you apply, to make sure that the collection area and date you want is available. If it is available we can make a provisional booking for you. 

You'll need to apply for a street collection permit at least 28 days before you want to make the collection.

Once you've carried out the collection you'll need to supply a return for the collection giving an account of monies raised.  You'll need to send this to us within one month of the collection taking place.


Before you apply you'll need to read our street collection regulations and our street collections policy.
