What we do
PFRA works with councils to control street ‘face-to-face’ (F2F) fundraising.
The Public Fundraising Regulatory Association is the self-regulatory body for street and doorstep Direct Debit fundraising. We work with councils to set up co-regulatory voluntary agreements. Click on the following links to see how PFRA can help you.
