​Complaint Handling Policy

Strong people, families, communities

We aim for our customers to have very positive experiences when they come into contact with our organisation and we pride ourselves on the very high level of customer retention that we have achieved.

We aim to minimise customer dissatisfaction by:

  • providing continuous effective staff training
  • being clear, open and honest about the services that we offer so that customers know what they can expect when they do business with us (please see our customer service charter)
  • regularly seeking feedback from our customers and using this information to improve our services and products
  • keeping track of complaints and analysing them so that we can prevent problems re-occurring
  • responding to complaints in a fair, open and honest manner
  • regularly measuring the customer service that we are providing


Complaints and feedback provide very important information to us, helping us to continually improve the services that we offer. Below is an out-line of our complaint handling policy.

Please note that for us to be able to resolve your complaint effectively, you need to complete Step 1 before proceeding to Step 2. Similarly you need to complete Step 2 before proceeding to Step 3.

If you are not happy with the service you have received, we DO want you to let us know. The sooner we find out that something is wrong, the sooner we can fix it

Policy process

If you have a complaint, we suggest that you speak to our friendly staff to see if we can resolve the problem for you quickly.

Complaints can also be made by:

We aim to resolve most issues at the point of contact and provide our staff with training to enable them to do so. However if our front-line staff are not able to resolve your issue, they will refer you to a more senior decision maker.

If not immediately available, a decision maker for the area that you are complaining about will contact you within 2 working days by writing or in telephone to acknowledge your complaint.
