I have met with the Fundraising Regulator to discuss a range of matters regarding charity fundraising.

The Fundraising Regulator has updated the Code of Fundraising Practice in relation to house to house collections of goods. From 30 September 2017 charities must not deliver bags to properties that display a notice clearly indicating that the householder does not wish to donate through this method.

Does this answer the above question?
