Christians Against Poverty aims to provide an acceptable standard of assistance to our Supporters, and if we fail to do this we want to know about it. In letting us know it will not only enable us to deal with the specific problem, but also to avoid it happening again.
This document explains how our complaints procedure will take up any matters where you believe the assistance you have received from Christians Against Poverty is unsatisfactory.
This procedure is meant to provide a means to resolve a dispute between Christians Against Poverty and any complainant. As an organisation we would like to hear from you about any of the following:
- Dissatisfaction with our assistance, such as an unacceptable delay or failure, a break in communication, or any other dissatisfaction with the handling of your donation, merchandise or Life Changer.
- Discourtesy or unhelpfulness on the part of Christians Against Poverty appointed representatives or staff.
