Do you want to help us raise money?
We depend on our volunteers to help us raise money to continue our work to provide information and support to children and adults who stammer. We have a number Fundraising Events happening in the near future.
Or, you can organise your own bucket collection and/or information table to help raise money and spread awareness of stammering. Check out our Fundraising Stories for inspiration!
Here are some tips on how to organise a street collection - more details on other community events coming soon!
How to Organise a Street Collection
If you're interested in organising a street collection in your area, there are a few steps to take to make sure that everything runs smoothly.
1. Let us know
Get in touch to let us know that you're interested in doing a street collection, we can arrange to send you sealed fundraising containers (these are required for public street collections.) We also have tabards available if you want to wear them to raise awareness.
We can also provide you with tips on how to make the most out of your street collection experience, including basic information on the BSA in case anyone asks for details.
2. Round up fellow volunteers
Get in touch with your local self-help / support group or we can help you get in touch with others in your area that may also be able to help with your collection.
3. Get the necessary permissions
If you are holding a street collection, you will need to apply for a licence, either from your local authority, or if in greater London, the Metropolitan Police. There may be restrictions on dates and numbers of collectors present at a given time, so please check with the relevant office.
For London Underground collections, you can email to apply to collect at a tube station.
If there is any information about the BSA which you need to help you fill out the form, please do get in touch and we will be happy to help you.
4. Send us the donations
After the collection, please do get in touch with us to tell us how the day went and we can advise you on the best way to get the donation to us.
If you have any questions on doing a street collection or any other fundraising event, do not hestitate to get in touch with our Fundraiser, Lee by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or ringing the office number on 0208 983 1003.
