Making a complaint about adult social care or thanking them for their help
If you receive support which is arranged or paid for by your local council then your views on the service you receive are important to them. Your council are committed to providing high quality services for local people. Hearing your views will help them to ensure that they are providing the right kind of services, and that these services are of a high quality.
There is one Customer Engagement Team working on behalf of the Adult Social Care teams in Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea. You can contact them by:
Completing the tear-off section from the leaflets below and send to the freepost address, which means you do not need a stamp
Writing to: Customer Engagement Team, Adult Social Care, 12th Floor, 64 Victoria Street, London, SW1E 6QP
In person - if you would prefer to meet us face to face then please contact us using one of the above methods and we will make an appointment with you
It is also useful for your council to hear from you when they get things right. Your compliment will help them to be sure they are delivering services of the highest standard.
The customer feedback team will provide you with a helpful service ensuring that there is no impact on your current service provision or any future decision about the service you receive. To ensure this, we will:
go through the details of your comment or complaint and agree a reasonable date for response
provide you with support if you need help to make a comment or complaint
explain the complaints process to you
write to you within three working days to let you know who is handling your complaint
take your comment or complaint seriously and make sure you receive a full and fair response
let you know if we need more time and agree an alternative timescale with you
put things right for you if we can and learn from any mistakes to improve our services
advise and support you if your complaint is about another body acting on our behalf.
Please note that the usual time limit for making your complaint is 12 months from the date you became aware of the problem.
Each of the councils has produced an information leaflet with more details on the complaint and feedback process, and has made available the latest report giving details of how many complaints are received, and how these are dealt with.
