In light of COVID-19, the PSNI has made the decision to temporarily suspend issuing any permits or licences for street and house-to-house charity collections in line with the Government’s guidance on social distancing.

In a statement issued today,  a spokesperson for the PSNI acknowledged:

"that this will be extremely disappointing for the charity and community sector, however I can assure you this decision was not taken lightly.  As you will appreciate, it is difficult to say how long this will go on for, however I can advise that we will keep this under regular review."

The Fundraising Regulator has issued guidance on public fundraising at this time. For more information see our summary at www.nicva.org/article/fundraising-regulators-advice-note-for-charities-on-fundraising-events-in-light-of-covid-19
