Guide to NCDV Complaints Procedure
NCDV seeks to provide a high quality, caring and informed service. We are constantly working to ensure the service we provide best meets the needs and concerns of our service users. If you believe you have not received the level of consideration and information you expect, we ask you to tell us about it. Your complaints provide us with information about where you think we are going wrong, and also what you think of us. We take your complaints seriously and will investigate them so we can respond appropriately to you and learn and improve our service.
The following will tell you:
How to Complain
In the first instance a complaint should be submitted in writing to either [email protected] or to NCDV, Edgeborough House, Upper Edgeborough Road, Guildford, Surrey, GU1 2BJ. If for any reason this is not possible for you then you may request a reasonable adjustment and a manager can call you to receive your complaint verbally when one is available.
To help us deal with your complaint effectively you should include details of what the problem is, how it occurred, how it has affected you and what you consider we should now do to put the matter right or prevent it happening again. You should also include details of the time and date of your call if applicable, your name and a contact number or address so that we may respond to you.
How will you deal with my complaint?
Complaints often differ in nature and complexity and in dealing with any complaints made in accordance with the Complaints Procedure we will seek to apply three basic principles.
What are the steps of the Complaints Procedure?
What if I am still not satisfied?
If you feel that the situation has not been satisfactorily dealt with, the final appeal may go to the Board of Directors. They can be contacted by the same means as above.
A representative of the Board will respond to the complaint within three weeks from the date of receipt, if they cannot respond within three weeks the complainant will be notified.
There will be no further opportunity to appeal against the Board’s decision.
If you are still not satisfied following the determination of a board member, you can raise your concerns with the Office of the Regulator of Community Interest Companies by clicking here.
If the complainant wishes to complain about a separate issue they must follow the complaints procedure from the initial stages as outlined above.
Details of complaints are kept on file for twenty-four months.
