When to complain

If something's gone wrong then we want to know about it so we can put it right. We learn from your complaints and feedback, it helps to improve our services.

Service requests 

A service request is something that we don’t know about yet. It could be something such as: 

You can make a complaint when you’re not satisfied with our service, or we haven’t provided a service to you. 


A complaint is when you’re not happy with: 

  • Our standard of service 
  • The actions we’ve taken, or lack of action 
  • How our colleagues have treated you  
  • Any contractors acting on our behalf 

Your complaint could affect just you, or a group of customers. 

Our complaints process 

We have a simple complaints process so we can put things right for you as quickly as we can. 

  1. We log your complaint and send you an acknowledgement letter 
  2. A complaint handler investigates your complaint within ten working days. They’ll look at all areas of your complaint and may contact you for more information 
  3. Your complaint handler writes a response to you. It’ll show you what they found out, any decisions made and what we’ll do to put it right. Your complaint is closed, but we’ll keep track of any work to make sure it’s done 

If your complaint is complex, or we need extra time to investigate, then we’ll contact you to let you know.
