In the event that a customer complaint is raised we will give it our full attention and try our hardest to resolve the matter as soon as we can.

The Folk2Folk Promise

We promise to do everything we possibly can to resolve your complaint as soon as we receive it, whether it’s face to face with one of our staff, over the phone or in writing. If we need more time to investigate your complaint, we will send you an acknowledgement letter and we will keep you updated on our progress throughout our investigation.

The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS)

The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) is an external body which plays a key role in the complaints process. FOS are an impartial and independent organisation formed to help settle individual disputes between consumers and financial services businesses without taking sides. If we have not been able to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction once we have sent out our final decision, you may be able to refer your complaint to the FOS. They will only investigate your complaint if you have already tried to resolve it with us first or if it has been more than 8 weeks since you first raised your complaint with Folk2Folk.
