We will send you a receipt once we have received a complaint – this will be usually done via email.
Our complaints process
We aim to resolve a complaint within 10 working days of receiving it. However, this may sometimes take longer, in which case we will send you an interim report together with a date by which we aim to resolve the complaint. All complaints will be investigated by our Senior Management team, who will provide clear, evidence-based reasons for their decision.
If you are unhappy with our response, please let us know. We will escalate your complaint to our Chair of Charity and Board of Trustees. This will lead to a further investigation and we will contact you with a resolution within 20 working days.
In you remain unhappy with the outcome, you are entitled to contact the Fundraising Regulator, who will independently investigate your complaint. To do so, please visit their website:-
