We are committed to providing an excellent customer service and we welcome all feedback from our customers. If you are pleased with our services, please let us know. We will use the information to thank our staff members.
We recognise however that sometimes things go wrong. If you are dissatisfied with something we have done or not done, or with the level of service you received, we want to know so we can investigate what’s happened and try to put things right. This also gives us the chance to learn and improve our services.
What is not a complaint?
We do not treat repair requests or reports of anti-social behaviour as complaints. You can report a repair online via our repairs section and you can report anti-social behaviour using our online ASB form.
Our complaints process
If you are unhappy with our service and you want to make a complaint, we have a two stage complaints process.
- Try to resolve the problem the first time you contact us.
- Respond to your complaint in full within ten working days, or let you know when we will respond if we need more time to investigate.
- Apologise and say how we will put things right if we have done something wrong.
- If you are not satisfied with our response at stage 1, you have 30 calendar days to tell us you want to take things further and tell us of any outstanding issues.
- An Executive Director or Senior Manager will review how the complaint was handled at Stage 1 and decide if the decisions we made were in line with our policies, fair and reasonable.
- We aim to provide a full response within 20 working days, or let you know when we will respond if we need more time to investigate.
- We will apologise and say how we will put things right if we have done something wrong.
- If you’re not happy with the Stage 2 decision you can take your complaint to the Housing Ombudsman. We will advise you on how to do this.
