Our complaints procedure

We will always do our best to resolve any issue as quickly as possible and to your satisfaction.

In instances where we cannot resolve a complaint immediately, because the information we need is not to hand or the matter requires further investigation, we will try to contact you within one working day. For more complex matters please allow up to 10 working days for a full response, following our initial contact.

Please note, as a charity with limited resources, we cannot always address complaints which aren’t directly related to our work, or that we are not in a position to comment upon.
