How we handle complaints
Your complaint will be handled by the Manager responsible for the particular program or service area about which you are complaining. We aim to handle all complaints promptly, usually within 7 working days of receiving a complaint. If we expect the process to take longer than 7 working days, we will let you know.
In handling and resolving your complaint, we will:
- Investigate the circumstances involved
- Provide reasons for any decisions made
- Ensure you are not disadvantaged through making a complaint
- Maintain the privacy and confidentiality of all everyone involved where practical and appropriate
What if I am not happy with how the complaint is handled?
If you are not happy with the outcome of your complaint or how the complaint was handled, you can escalate the complaint to an “appeal” which means the complaint is then reviewed by the Executive Director. If the complaint is regarding the Executive Director, it would be reviewed by the Co-Chairs of our Board of Governance.
To make an appeal, you would let the manager handling your complaint know by sending them a letter by post, fax or email, or by calling them (see our contact details above).
The Executive Director or Co-chairs will respond within 7 working days.
If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of the appeal, you may choose to take your complaint to the Ombudsman. An ombudsman is an independent person who can investigate and resolve disputes between people and government. It is a free service.
