Breast Cancer Now is a member of the Fundraising Standards Board and as such complies with the six key pledges in the Fundraising Promise.
When things go wrong
We recognise that there may be times when we do not meet our high standards of supporter care. When this happens, it is important that we know so that we can effectively deal with the situation, try to prevent it from happening again and learn from our mistakes.
Your feedback matters to us
At Breast Cancer Now, we openly welcome feedback, comments, suggestions 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.
Our promise and commitment to you
We promise to take all complaints seriously and to deal with them in a timely manner.
How to complain
You can call us, write to us or email us about your complaint and our staff will be pleased to help.
Step 1: Contact us
The first step is to contact a member of our Supporter Care Team, ideally by telephone as this is often the most effective way for us to find out exactly what has happened and to strive to resolve the situation quickly and efficiently, hopefully to your satisfaction.
Please call our Supporter Care Team on 020 7749 4114 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
We will try to resolve the problem straight away if we can. If we can’t do this, for example, because the information we need is not to hand, or because we need to carry out further investigation, then we will make a record of your complaint and agree the best way and time to contact you. This will normally be within five working days unless we make some other arrangement that is acceptable to you.
If you prefer to write to us about your complaint, please send your letter, together with your name, address and contact telephone number to:
Supporter Care Team
Breast Cancer Now
London EC3N 1DY
You can also email your complaint to email@example.com
Please include your full name, address and contact telephone number together with details of your complaint.
Step 2: Taking your complaint further
If, after contacting our Supporter Care team, you are still unhappy, the next step is to put your complaint in writing, either by letter or email and send this to the Complaints Co-ordinator at the postal or email address below. Please set out clearly the details of the complaint, explaining why you are not satisfied with our response and what you would like us to do to put things right.
We promise that your complaint will be dealt with promptly and in confidence
Upon receipt of your complaint, we will investigate the matter thoroughly. If we cannot resolve the matter immediately, we will contact you within five working days of receipt of your complaint to let you know when you can expect a full response. We strive to respond in full to complaints within ten working days. If the matter requires further investigation beyond ten days, we will contact you to advise when you can expect our response. In most instances, this will be within 21 working days.
Step 3: The next stage
If, upon receipt of our written response you are still not satisfied, please let us know in writing. Your complaint may be passed to our Senior Management Team or to our Chief Executive’s office for further investigation and response. You can expect to receive a full response from them within ten working days from receipt of your subsequent letter or email.
Step 4: Taking your complaint outside the organisation
If your complaint is about our fundraising work or activities and you are not satisfied with our response, you are entitled to take your complaint to the Fundraising Standards Board. This is the self-regulatory scheme that works to ensure that organisations raising money from the public do so honestly and properly.
