Complaints procedure

The NRH Foundation is committed to ensuring that all our communications and dealings with the general public and our supporters are of the highest possible standard.  We listen and respond to the views of the general public and our supporters so that we can continue to improve.

The NRH Foundation welcomes both positive and negative feedback.

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 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 quickly and politely;
  • We respond accordingly – for example, with an explanation, or an apology where we have got things wrong, and information on any action taken etc;
  • We learn from complaints, and use them to improve. We will also commit to publish our complaints profile in our annual report.

If you do have a complaint about any aspect of our work, you can contact Edel Lambe, Fundraising Manager, NRH Foundation in writing or by telephone.

In the first instance, your complaint will be dealt with by The Fundraising Manager, Edel Lambe. Please give us as much information as possible and let us know how you would like us to respond to you, providing relevant contact details. Please also provide information as to whether you are making a complaint on an individual basis or representing a group or company.

Please write to:
Ms. Edel Lambe
Fundraising Manager
The NRH Foundation
The National Rehabilitation Hospital

Alternatively you can contact the Fundraising office on the direct line:
Tel: 01 235 5280, or email: fundraising@nrh.ieedel.lambe@nrh.ie

We are open 5 days a week, Monday to Friday, from 9.00 am to 5.30 pm.

What happens next?

If you complain in person or over the phone, we will try to resolve the issue there and then. Similarly, if you complain by email or in writing we will always acknowledge your complaint within 7 days, and do everything we can to resolve it within 21 days. If this is not possible, we will explain why and provide a new deadline.

What if the complaint is not resolved?

If you are not happy with our response, you may get in touch again by writing to the NRH Foundation Company Secretary, Mr. Derek Greene. The Secretary of the Foundation will ensure that your appeal is considered at Board level and will respond within two weeks of this consideration by Board members.
