Complaints Procedure

Complaints Procedure


Mayo Roscommon Hospice Foundation aim to comply with the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising as published by the Irish Charities Tax Reform Group.

We are committed to ensuring that all our communications and dealings with the general public and supporters of our fundraising activities are of the highest possible standard. We listen and respond to the voices of the general public and our supporters so that we can continue to improve.

MRHF welcomes all feedback, whether it is of a positive or negative nature.

Therefore, we aim to ensure that:

It is as easy as possible to make a complaint

We treat as a complaint any clear expression of dissatisfaction with our fundraising operations which calls for a response.

We treat it seriously whether it is made by telephone, letter, fax, email or in person

We deal with it in an efficient manner and politely.

We respond accordingly; for example with an explanation, an apology or some form of relevant address where we have got things wrong and information on any resultant action taken.

We learn from complaints, use them to improve and monitor them at organisational level.

  • If you do have a complaint about any aspect of our fundraising operations, you can contact MRHF in writing or by telephone
