Charitable collections

Licences or permits

There is no fee for charitable collection licences or permits.

The collection must be for a charitable purpose as defined in Part 1 of the Charities Act 2011.

Selling articles on a street other than for a charitable purpose requires a Street Trading Consent.

The application must be made no later than one month before the first proposed collection date.

Direct Debit collections are administered by the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) on behalf of Slough Borough Council under a Site Management Agreement (SMA). The SMA came into effect from 17 October 2011.

More information about making a charitable donation safely or reporting scams and bogus collections can be found on this Fraud Advisory Panel leaflet.


In the first instance please direct all complaints to the licensing manager. You can make complaints about a direct debit collection in Slough High Street through the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) website.
