  • Complaints

    If you would like to make a complaint regarding one of our services, fill out the form below. We aim to resolve complaints as quickly and effectively as possible by using the following process.

    Please note if your complaint is regarding a neighbour or Anti Social Behaviour in your neighbourhood these are dealt with differently and can be reported here.

    Informal complaints
    We find the most effective way to resolve the majority of our complaints is by offering a quick resolution and putting things right first time. You will be contacted by a person from the relevant department either by phone, email or text message within 2 working days.

    Formal complaints
    If your complaint is more complicated and in-depth, requiring a detailed investigation, it may take us longer to look into and respond:

    Formal: Stage 1
    A Stage 1 complaint is investigated by an appropriate manager and we aim to respond in writing within 10 working days. The vast majority of complaints are sorted out by this stage, but if you are not happy with the solution you can request it be reviewed again.

    Formal: Stage 2
    If you remain dissatisfied after your Stage 1 complaint, you have the opportunity to escalate to Stage 2, which will be investigated by the Head of the appropriate Department. These complaints may take up to 15 working days to receive a written response to.

    If after this you are still dissatisfied, there are further options available to you, including the Independent Tenant Solutions Board and Housing Ombudsman. We can discuss these with you at this stage.

    Make a complaint

    Please give as much information and detail as you can about the complaint and its history.
    Photos which evidence complaints can help us to resolve them quicker. Attach any that you have here.

    Just to let you know, once your complaint has been resolved we may ask you for feedback on the outcome and way it was handled. The feedback helps us improve our Complaints service.

    Further information

    Read more about complaints in our Complaints Policy.

    We offer a Complaints Buddy Service, where you can be paired with an impartial buddy to help support you with your complaint. Find out more.
