St. Josephs Foundation’s Complaints Policy, “Your Service, Your Say”, invites all service users to have their say about their experience of our services and about how the services have been delivered. This in turn will allow St. Josephs Foundation to continually improve and develop its services.

The policy outlines the systems and processes whereby an individual service user can give and receive feedback or make a complaint regarding any aspect of the service. The policy also provides a comprehensive process for the management, informal resolution and the investigation of complaints.
