Why should I complain?
We welcome complaints and will support you to ensure that your concerns are listened to and investigated.
Brighter Futures takes all complaints seriously and wants to learn from mistakes to improve services in the future.
Wherever possible we will make changes to make sure that the problem does not happen again.
What is a complaint?
A complaint could be:
- You are not satisfied with the way you have been treated
- You are not satisfied with the service you have received from Brighter Futures
- You are unhappy with the behaviour of one of our staff
- You think we haven’t followed proper procedures or rules
If you’re not happy with any part of our service tell us and we will try to put things right.
If you want to complain you can be accompanied, advised, represented or supported by a person of your choice at any stage of the process.
How do I complain?
