National Trust Raffles - Complaints and Disputes Procedure

The National Trust works within strict codes of conduct and any complaints we receive about the Raffle are taken very seriously.

The procedure for raising a complaint is detailed below:

Step 1

You can contact the National Trust Donor Development Executive as below:

Telephone: 01793 817579

Email: NTraffles@nationaltrust.org.uk

By post: The Donor Development Executive, National Trust, Kemble Drive, SN2 2NA.

Please provide full details of the complaint and any supporting documentation.

Your complaint will be acknowledged within 14 days. All complaints are logged and the outcome of any complaint is also recorded for future reference.

The Donor Development Executive will then make an investigation, and an update or the outcome will be advised to you within 30 days of receipt of the complaint.

In the unlikely event that a complainant does not receive a response within 30 days or is not satisfied with the response received or how it has been handled, the procedure in Step 2 will be followed.

Step 2

If for any reason you are not satisfied with how the National Trust has resolved your complaint, you may decide that the matter be referred for adjudication by the Independent Betting Adjudication Service (“IBAS”).

IBAS acts as an impartial adjudicator on disputes that arise between betting/gambling operators and their customers after they have been through the operator's own internal dispute procedures and if a deadlock exists. As well as offering effective dispute resolution procedures, IBAS also check that operators have complied with the standards set by the Gambling Commission and with the IBAS terms and conditions of registration.

IBAS can be contacted as below:

Telephone: +44 (0)20 7347 5883
