As new national restrictions begin in England from Thursday 5 November 2020, subject to Parliamentary approval, we expect charities and their partners to pause public fundraising activities (including door-to-door, street, and private site fundraising) for the duration of the new restrictions. In other UK nations, fundraising should be carried out in line with the restrictions that apply in each country and according to our guidance. These should be reviewed regularly as arrangements may change. In areas where there are tight restrictions in force (for example, the closure of non-essential shops) we similarly expect public fundraising to be paused.
Note this statement has since been withdrawn as the government's guidance has since changed.
