Complaints

Do you have a complaint or concern about one of our services? If so, we might be able to help you get it dealt with.  It's our job to take complaints and make sure they're responded to. Complaints are just as important as praise and appreciation in helping us improve our services.

You can make a complaint if a service or staff member:

  • didn’t comply with law or guidelines;
  • didn’t meet appropriate standards of care;
  • put someone's safety at risk;
  • impacted badly on someone, whether it was:
    • you
    • someone you know who uses our services
    • a partner or family member
    • a worker from another agency
    • a member of the public


Your Privacy

Sometimes people feel reluctant to make complaints. They may be embarrassed, afraid that no-one will listen, or anxious about what will happen. 

If you feel this way, you can give your feedback anonymously - you don’t have to identify yourself.  We will respond to your comments, however you decide to make them.


Positive Feedback and Suggestions

We like to do the best job we can, so if you think our staff or services have done a good job in assisting you, or if you have some ideas about improvements, we’d really like to know about it. 

If you're not sure about what you want to tell us, just call - we’d like to hear from you.
