A new agreement to reduce the number of face-to-face fundraisers operating in Birmingham city centre comes into effect today (1 July 2016).
The Public Fundraising Association’s (PFRA) street fundraising site management agreement with Birmingham City Council will initially run for three months.
The strong, voluntary agreement between charities, Birmingham City Council and the Public Fundraising Association will manage when, where and how many fundraisers can operate in the city centre. There will be no fundraising on the weekend and the total number of fundraisers in the city centre will be limited to 12, spread over three sites at any one time.
