Compliments and Complaints - Children in Care

We aim to provide the best possible service to you and welcome any feedback you may have about the service you receive. We need your feedback to ensure that we are always learning and improving our services to you and other children, young people and families who access our services.


It’s important that we hear your positive feedback, so that we know what we’re doing right, and we know to keep doing it. If there’s something we’ve done well, please tell us about it!
