Complaints Procedure

We want to give you the best possible service. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about the service, we have provided then you should inform us immediately, so that we can do our best to resolve the problem.

In the first instance it may be helpful to contact the person who is working on your case to discuss your concerns and we will do our best to resolve any issues. If you would like to make a formal complaint, then you can read our full complaints procedure below. Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case.

  1. We will acknowledge the complaint within seven days which allows for any postal delays and notify you who will be handling your complaint.
  2. We will record your complaint in our central register and open a file for your complaint. We will conduct a full investigation and an independent review of the matter.
  3. We aim to respond in full within 28 days. However, if the complaint is of a more complex nature, we will require more time, but we will let you know when you will receive a full response. We may also invite you to meet with the Supervisor to gather more information and resolve the matter.
  4. We will reply to you, usually in writing following the outcome of the review of the complaints investigated.

If you remain dissatisfied with the outcome, or the way the complaint has been handled, you may write to the Principal Mrs. Tahera Patel– also at the address above, who will make such further investigations as are necessary. We would generally aim to do this within 14 days. This will happen in one of the following ways –


The Principal will inform you of the conclusions and any alternative proposals to resolve the complaint.

The Legal Ombudsman can help you if we are unable to resolve your complaint ourselves. They will look at your complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your case.

Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman:
