Home / Make a Complaint

We want every customer to get a good service. But if we don’t get it right, we want to know so we can do something about it. Anyone who’s been affected by a service failure can make a complaint.

Anyone who’s been affected by a service failure can make a complaint. You can also ask someone to complain for you.

When you complain, our team will do their best to put it right immediately, but complicated issues can take longer. This leaflet explains what to expect when you make a complaint.

We deal with complaints following The Housing Ombudsman Service’s Complaint Handling Code. You can contact the Housing Ombudsman at any time within your complaint for general advice and help. If you want the Housing Ombudsman to accept your complaint for a full investigation, you need to exhaust our complaints process first. You can find out more information about the Ombudsman at https://www.housing-ombudsman.org.uk/

Our complaints policy is available here.

To comply with the Housing Ombudsman Complaints Code, we need to make the following documents available. They can be accessed through the links on their titles.
