In general, any person with an issue or concern around fundraising or donations should discuss this with the person they are dealing with in the organisation in the first instance. Most issues can be resolved informally in this way.

Where it is not possible or appropriate to deal with your issue in this way, you should set out your complaint, and refer it to Tia Crowley, Director of Finance & Corporate Services, contact details above. The issue raised will be discussed with the relevant person dealing with this within Western Care Association, and following this a response will issue to you. This should be done within seven days in normal circumstances, and if further time is required to gather information to deal with the matter, this will be communicated to you.

If you are dissatisfied with the response you receive, and feel that your complaint has not been resolved satisfactorily, you can refer your complaint to Tom Hughes, Head of Evaluation & Training, Western Care Association, John Moore Road, Castlebar, Co Mayo,, who will investigate your complaint fully and endeavour to resolve it. This process should normally be completed within 10 days.
