Fundraising complaints policy - Refugee Council

Fundraising complaints policy

Refugee Council aims to maintain high standards in all of its work but we recognise that we can sometimes get things wrong, despite our best intentions. We are committed to establishing and maintaining good relations with all supporters, campaigners, donors, partners, volunteers and members of the public and we aim to always treat people with respect.

Your feedback matters to us

At The Refugee Council, we openly welcome feedback and complaints. We actively encourage you to contact us with your feedback, whether good or bad. Complaints are especially important to us as they may help us to see where our procedures or activities might be improved. We will keep a record of all complaints we receive to help us learn for the future.

How to complain

You can call us, write to us or email us about your complaint and our Supporter Care team will be pleased to help.
