Feedback & Complaints in Fundraising

Our generous donors are at the heart of all that we do and we are committed to ensuring that all our communications and dealings with our supporters and the general public are of the highest possible standard.

It is inevitable that feedback and complaints arise and we listen and respond to these views so that we can continuously improve and develop.  We welcome all feedback, both positive and negative.

We aim to ensure that:

  • It is easy to give feedback or make a complaint.
  • We treat as a complaint any clear expression of dissatisfaction with our fundraising activities, practices or communications.
  • We take all complaints seriously, whether made in person, by email or over the phone.
  • We deal with all complaints swiftly and in a respectful, honest and professional manner.
  • We will respond accordingly – for example, with an explanation or an apology when we make errors and with information on any action taken.
  • We learn from feedback and complaints and use them to improve our practices.
