You Said - We did

We are serious about your opinions.

Any complaint, or criticism or suggestion you make, we listen to it – we act on it

We ask everyone who uses our service to fill in a Complaints, Complements and Suggestions form, to help us to see what we are doing right, what we could do better, and what we could do that we are not doing at the moment. We consider each of these, decide what we are going to do, and explain why. Some of them are about things beyond our control, like more or continued funding for the service. But the things we can change, log and respond to. In the last year we have had 7 suggestions for improvement. they are listed below, along with what action we took.
