Make a complaint

If you feel that there has been a service failure, you can log a complaint which will be investigated.

Our aim is to ensure we handle your complaint in a prompt, polite and fair way, by working with you to find a resolution as soon as possible.

Once we know something has gone wrong, we can put things right, and prevent similar things happening in the future by learning from our mistakes.

We have fully adopted the Housing Ombudsman Complaint Handling Code.
