Keep it legal

Fundraising should be fun, but it’s important to make sure that your activity is legal and safe for everyone involved. Planning ahead is the key to getting this right. Here are a few pointers:


If you’re holding an event in a public place, you must get permission first, either from the local authority or the property owner.

First aid

If you are holding an event involving a number of people it’s a good idea to have first aid supplies on hand, and qualified first aiders if possible. You can get advice from St John Ambulance or the Red Cross.


If your event involves the general public, it’s a good idea to have Public Liability Insurance. Check first to see if your venue already has this.

Fundraising with food

To keep everyone safe, it’s a good idea to check Food Standards Agency guidelines on preparing, handling, cooking and storing food.
