Making a complaint

We always aim to deliver excellent services, but sometimes we can get it wrong. If you tell us when we have made a mistake, or something has not met your expectations, it helps us to improve in the future.

When should I complain?

If at any time you are dissatisfied with the services you receive from us, we would like to know.

All complaints we receive are monitored by our Service Improvement Manager and a team of residents, who use the information to identify any opportunities to improve existing services and ensure that the Trust deals with all complaints objectively and fairly.
