Oxfam New Zealand has a complaints policy which provides a means of dealing with any complaints in a fair, prompt and understanding manner. We take expressions of dissatisfaction by partners, supporters, government agencies, other non-government organisations, other external bodies, other Oxfam affiliates and individuals very seriously.

Oxfam New Zealand provides an open and effective process for handling any grievance or complaint received. Complaints may be received verbally or in writing, but if made verbally are recorded and logged in writing. Any person may lodge a complaint with Oxfam New Zealand about any matter over which Oxfam New Zealand has control and that they consider gives grounds for a complaint. All complaints are treated confidentially.

All investigations into complaints received will take into account the rights of the complainant and any staff or partner that the complaint involves.

If you are not satisfied with the response to a complaint, you can request that it be taken to the Executive Director, and, if of a sufficiently serious nature, to the Board of Trustees.

Complaints are also an important component of supporter feedback and welfare. We will ensure that all feedback is communicated to the appropriate staff, and individual, appropriate actions are taken.

For any complaint alleging breach of the Council for International Development Code of Conduct, please contact via or
