If you feel that we have not resolved your complaint, we will advise you on the appropriate governing body to contact.

Fundraising Regulator

The British Heart Foundation proudly works with the Fundraising Regulator, an independent body who set and maintain the standards for charitable fundraising. We follow the Codes of Fundraising Practice and commit to follow the Fundraising Promise which set the standards for fundraising activity throughout the UK.

We use the Fundraising Regulator logo to show you that we’re following these standards. By using this logo, we want you to know that you can trust us and give with confidence.

We promise to be honest, fair and open about our fundraising with you, our supporters. We want to reassure you that we will fundraise in a responsible way and, if you don’t think we’re meeting these high standards then we will take your views seriously. We will always try to resolve your concerns but if you think we haven’t, you can forward your complaint within two months of our final response.

To take your complaint directly to the Fundraising Regulator use the online complaints form or call 0300 999 3407.
