Comments and Complaints
If you are unhappy with our service, you can make a complaint. We have tried to make our complaint process as simple as possible, but if you need any help, please let us know.
Our commitment to you
- We will deal with your complaint politely and in confidence.
- It will be looked into thoroughly, fairly and as quickly as possible.
- We will keep you up to date with what we are doing.
- We will apologise if we have made a mistake.
- We will tell you what we are going to do to put things right.
How to complain
In the first instance, you should discuss the matter with the individual concerned. In many cases this will resolve the matter quickly.
If you do not wish to talk to the individual concerned, or if the initial discussion has not solved the problem, ask to speak to the Carers Information Service Manager. The Carers Information Service Manager will discuss your concern with you and attempt to resolve your complaint.
If you are unable to resolve your complaint informally, please put your complaint in writing to:
Carers Information Service
Carers Support Centre
24 George Street
Croydon CR0 1PB
When writing your complaint, please provide full details of what your complaint is about, including any dates, times and names, and copies of any documents that you would like us to consider. Please let us know how you would prefer to be contacted. Your complaint will be acknowledged within three working days.
Once we have received this information, we will write to you within 14 days to tell you of any action we propose to take in response to your complaint, or our reason for not taking any further action.
If you are unhappy with the response to your formal complaint, you can write to Martin Corney, Chief Executive of John Whitgift Foundation (of which the Carers Information Service is a part) within 14 days of receiving the response. He will refer your complaint to John Whitgift Foundation Complaints Panel for consideration and the Panel will investigate.
