Complaint Procedures

Where Residents have a complaint or grievance about a member of Staff, Residents or any other matters, the complaint will be dealt with in a manner suitable to its severity. Should it be an Informal complaint, then an informal approach will be made by discussing (through the Manager) the matter with relevant individuals.

Where the Informal complaint lacks satisfactory outcome, then it will automatically escalate to a Formal Complaint. Should the complaint prove to be of a severe nature, then it will be dealt with as a Formal Compliant in its first instance.

  1. The Complaint will be made in writing and addressed to the Registered manager or in the absence of the registered manager, it will be addressed to Mrs Francesca Windsor.
  2. A written acknowledgment will be issued within 48 Hours.
  3. The Manager will initiate an investigation accompanied with one of Staff Members (unconnected to the complaint).
  4. During the course of investigation, the effected parties will be encouraged to be accompanied by third party.
  5. Every effort will be made to complete the investigation within no more than 28 days.
  6. Upon completion of the investigation, a report will be prepared, detailing the outcome of the investigation.
  7. The Manager will decide as to whether any action (Disciplinary or otherwise) needs to be taken.
  8. The report together with the Decision will be sent to all relevant parties.
  9. All parties concerned will be contacted within 48 hours of the (potential) receipts of the Report to discuss their either agreement or concern over the Report, Decision and Actions to be taken. This may also include Amendment/ Implementation/ Improvement of the current Policies.
