Complaints about our fundraising
If you are contacting the Supporter Care team with a complaint about our fundraising, we may need to carry out further investigation so we will make a record of this and get in contact with you to discuss your complaint further.
This will normally be within two to five working days, and if further investigation into your complaint is required we would always aim to provide a full response within 25 working days.
Taking your complaint further
We promise that your complaint will be dealt with promptly.
Once we have received a formal written complaint, we will arrange for it to be fully investigated. As stated above, this will be acknowledged as soon as possible, and an outcome should be expected within five working days for simple cases.
If the matter is particularly complicated it may take us up to a maximum of 25 working days. Where this is the case, we will still let you know what action is being taken and tell you when we expect to be able to provide you with a full response.
The next stage
If upon receipt of the complaint outcome you are still not satisfied, please let us know, and tell us what you wish us to do next. We will confirm receipt of this within five working days.
Your complaint will be fully investigated and you can expect to receive a full written response from us within 25 working days.
Please note if your complaint is of a very serious nature, it may start at a higher level of escalation.
Useful contacts and information
If the above escalation process has not resolved your complaint, and you are unsatisfied with how NDCS have handled your complaint you can escalate this to the Fundraising Regulator, via the link provided below.
