A record is kept of all complaints. However, your complaint is confidential and only the people involved to resolve any problems know about your complaint. This includes any worker that you have complained about. The nature and outcome of all complaints are also reported to the Centre’s Director, and if necessary the Centre’s Board. This information is then used to improve our services. It also lets us know what we are doing well.
If you need help making a complaint, you can call us on (07) 4031 7688 or 1800 062 608 or visit our office. Arrangements for an interpreter can also be made, or if you would like a support person to help you, please let us know.
If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint, you can ask for an internal review. You can also refer your complaint to an external body at any time.
