In every shopping street, pedestrian are being harassed by agressive F2F charity collectors (Chuggers – Charity Muggers).  The general public and Local Council are desperately trying to lobby the government for the law to be enabled in the Charities Act 2006, so that full control and licencing of these groups can be enforced so that they are properly controlled and regulated.

At the moment self regulation is not working and the public is being harassed and abused by these chuggers and the local authorities have no powers to control them.

Many people now are avoiding certain areas in order to avoid this public nuicence and thus having a bad affect on local business'.  Also they are agressively undermining local charities in the intrusive approach to passers by.  They are affecting the local economy as a result and it it clear that Local Authorities should be able to control this behaviour.

It should be a fundamental human right to walk the street free of agressive beggers and chuggers so please enact this law so that councils can properly protect their local citizens.
