Making a complaint is speaking up about something you are not happy with or you do not like.
What can I complain about?
Here are some of the things you might want to complain about:
- People – how staff or other Horton clients talk to you and treat you.
- Support – are you getting what you need?
- Information – have things been explained to you so that you understand?
- Buildings/Accommodation – are there any problems?
It is fine to make a complaint. If you tell us you are unhappy with something or someone, you will not:
- lose your support
- lose your home, or
- be treated badly.
How do I complain?
Tell someone as soon as possible. This may help to get your problem sorted out quickly.
Think about what you want to say:
- What happened?
- When it happened?
- Where it happened?
- Who you are complaining about?
- What you want to happen to make things better?
Who do I tell?
- Your Support Worker
- The Manager
- Anyone who works at Horton.
Or you can also tell someone else that you trust, this might be:
- Family Member
They can help you get in touch with the people you need to complain to.
