The Funeral Planning Authority
The Funeral Planning Authority (FPA) is an organisation that has been set up to regulate providers in the UK prepaid funeral plan industry. The primary aim of the FPA is to ensure that the providers involved are operating in line with a stringent set of rules and procedures to help protect customers and give them extra reassurance that they will be receiving the funeral they have paid for, when the time comes.
National Funeral Trust
The National Funeral Trust is in place for our customers protection, in the unlikely event that Dignity Funeral Plans goes out of business. As a completely separate entity to Dignity, and ran by some of the most significant financial firms in the UK, the National Trust Fund is able to hold and protect all the funds our customers pay towards their funeral plans. Each year the fund is actuarially valued and audited by Pricewaterhousecoopers and Ernst Young which means that in the unlikely event that Dignity Funeral Plans were to go out of business our customers’ money is safeguarded.
BSI Quality ISO 9001
The Business Standards Institution’s ISO 9001 is an international accreditation for Quality Management Systems. By certifying this standard, Dignity has been able to prove that it continues to reach and exceed the global benchmark for quality management and has used it as a tool for improving and our business. With consistent monitoring and testing, ISO 9001 helps to improve our overall operations and help build an even more reliable company.
BSI Kitemark for Customer Service
In early 2017, Dignity became the first ever company in the UK to receive the Kitemark™ for Customer Service & Compliant Management from the Business Standards Institution. The renowned Kitemark™ symbol is in place for acknowledgment when a company has met the international benchmarks in a specified area. With customer service being at the very heart of Dignity and its teams, the Kitemark™ is a true demonstration that we treat every customer with the utmost compassion and care.
