If the complaint relates to a specific person, that person will be informed and given a fair opportunity to respond.

This decision will be final.  We will confirm by email that English National Ballet has exhausted its Complaints Procedure and the matter is now resolved or closed.

Making a fundraising complaint

Being registered with the Regulator means we pledge to stand by its Fundraising Promise and ensure that our fundraising methods are of the highest standard – always legal, honest, open and respectful.

We hope you won’t ever have cause to make a fundraising complaint, but if you do want to contact us, we will always take your complaint seriously, with respect and in confidence. We will investigate your complaint thoroughly and fairly to find out the facts of the case, avoiding unnecessary delay.

Please make your complaint as soon as possible after the incident or communication has taken place. Once we receive your complaint, we promise to contact you within five working days. If the matter is complex, we will let you know how long we think our final response will take. We aim to respond in full to all complaints within 20 working days.

If you are not satisfied with our response, please let us know and we will refer your complaint to the Senior Leadership Team. We will provide you with clear, evidence-based reasons for our decision ensuring that our decisions are proportionate, appropriate and fair.

The Executive Director will review all actions taken, decide if further action is required and will send a final response.

If you are still not happy that your complaint has been fully dealt with, you can contact the Fundraising Regulator who will independently investigate your complaint.
