Here are the ways in which you can let us know what you think:
Talk to a member of the Charity Team about your complaint
If you have a complaint, they will do their best to resolve any issue. If they cannot, or do not, resolve the matter to your satisfaction they will refer your complaint to the Complaints Coordinator who we follow the Charity’s complaints procedure.
Email the Charity with details of your complaint
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org about your complaint. This will be directed to our Complaints Coordinator for action. We would be grateful if you would include your full name, address and phone number and full detail of your complaint. This will enable our team to respond as quickly as possible.
Write to the Charity about your complaint
If you would like to write to us to complain, please address all correspondence to:

The Charity’s Complaints Coordinator will ensure that your complaint is investigated appropriately, and will reply to you to explain what steps the Charity is taking to deal with your complaint in order to resolve/address your complaint, and the timescales involved.
