Charitable Collections

House-to-House Collections

House to House collections are regulated by the House to House Collections Act 1939. All house to house collections for a charitable purpose must be licensed by us, and the collectors authorised by the promoter.

We accept written applications for House to House collections in Oxford City Centre and surrounding area. There is no cost involved. We cannot grant a licence for a period longer than 12 months and may refuse a licence, or where granted, might revoke it, in circumstances specified in the Act.

How to apply

Application forms for a licence must be sent to us at least four weeks in advance of the proposed dates of collection.
