Your feedback matters to us

At Refugee Council, we openly welcome feedback and complaints. We actively encourage you to contact us with your feedback, whether good or bad. Complaints are especially important to us as they may help us to see where our procedures or activities might be improved. We will keep a record of all complaints we receive to help us learn for the future.

Complaints about our services

It may be possible to resolve your complaint by having an informal discussion with the relevant manager and agree on a practical solution. If that doesn’t work, or if you don’t feel comfortable about doing this, you can make a formal complaint.
