Appendix II: Complaints policy and process
The Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF) views complaints not only as a chance to put things right for the person who has made the complaint, but also as an opportunity to learn and improve for the future.
Our policy is:
- To provide a fair complaints procedure which is clear and easy to use
- To publicise the existence of our complaints procedure so that people know how to contact us
- To make sure everyone at BRF knows what to do if a complaint is received
- To make sure all complaints are investigated fairly and in a timely way
- To make sure that complaints are, wherever possible, resolved to your satisfaction
- To gather information that will help us to improve what we do
Our process is as follows:
- All complaints will be recorded, passed to the relevant head of department, and acknowledged within five working days.
- If we can deal with your complaint immediately, we will do so.
- We will reply within 20 working days, or, if this is not possible because, for example, an investigation has not been fully completed, a progress report will be sent with an indication of when a full reply will be given.
- If your complaint is found to be justified, you will receive an apology together with details of any other steps we believe are necessary in the circumstances. We will also explain what we are doing to prevent the issue arising again.
- In the event that we find your complaint is not justified, we will write to you as soon as possible, and within 20 working days, and explain why.
- If you feel that the complaint has not been satisfactorily resolved, you can request that it be reviewed at Board level. At this stage, the complaint will be passed to the Chair of Trustees.
- We will acknowledge the request for Board level review within five working days, indicating who will deal with the case and when you can expect a reply.
- The decision taken at this stage is final, unless the Board decides it is appropriate to seek external assistance with resolution.
All complaint information will be handled sensitively, informing only those who need to know and following any relevant data protection requirements.
