Complaints

If you're unhappy with any aspect of our work, we'd like to hear about it. We value all feedback, both good and bad, and welcome the opportunity to learn and improve.

Entrants should contact the Raffle Helpline on 0800 169 8787 or email contact@ageuk.org.uk to discuss their complaint.

It is only in situations where an informal discussion of a complaint or problem has been tried and has failed to bring about a satisfactory solution, that a more formal complaints procedure will be used.

How we'll respond

We'll treat your complaint seriously.

  • We'll endeavour to address complaints made by telephone, email and in person within 2 working days.
  • Complaints made in writing will be acknowledged within 5 working days of receipt.
  • If we need to make further investigations, we'll confirm that we have received your complaint and seek to resolve the complaint within 20 working days.

What happens next?

If your complaint hasn't been resolved satisfactorily, a review will be conducted internally.

If your complaint is about Age UK’s fundraising and you're unsatisfied with Age UK’s response you can escalate your complaint to the Fundraising Regulator. Age UK is a member of the Fundraising Regulator and agrees to fundraise in accordance with the Code of Fundraising Practice and the Fundraising Promise.
