If you want to read a detailed version of our complaints policy and procedure please ask, using the contact details above.

Resolving complaints

We aim to resolve all complaints at the earliest opportunity and to your satisfaction. After you have received your response, we will be in contact to ask how you felt your complaint was handled.

If you are not satisfied with the response to your complaint, you can ask for this to be reviewed by a more senior manager.

If, after this, you feel that we have not dealt fully with your complaint or you are unhappy with the way it was handled, you can contact the Local Government Ombudsman.

If your complaint relates to a children's or adults' Social Care service, there are separate processes in place to handle your issues. You can still make your complaint through the options listed above.

The Department of Health sets the process for complaints about adult's Social Care and the process for complaints about children's Social Care services is set out in the the 1989 Children Act.

Receiving compliments

If you have sent us a compliment we will make sure the people concerned know about it and let you know that this has been received.

Using your suggestions
