Making a complaint
When you get in touch with us, our Contact Centre will aim to put things right for you straight away. However, we don’t always get things right first time and if you do have any problems, let us know and we’ll do our best to rectify the problem quickly.
If your complaint is more complex, our team of dedicated Complaints Specialists will investigate your complaint and ensure that we listen to and address your concerns. Our Complaints Team will aim to:
- Acknowledge your complaint within 2 working days
- Provide a full response within 10 working days
- Learn from your complaint and identify opportunities to improve the way we deliver services
If you believe our service really hasn’t been up to standard and you wish to make a formal complaint, you can contact us in one of the following ways:
- Online via the My Onward portal
