Every year Age UK Buckinghamshire help improve the lives of thousands of local people through our range of services.
We try to get our services right first time, every time and we always welcome positive feedback but occasionally, things do go wrong and when they do we also want to hear about it.
We value your feedback and use the information to help inform improvement.
We take all complaints seriously.
Compliments and feedback
If you have had a good experience when using our services then we would love to hear from you. This is valued information. Positive feedback is welcomed by staff and helps us to understand when we get things right.
You can do this by speaking directly with a member of staff, writing to us by letter or email.
If you write to us we will ensure that, when specified, the member of staff and team concerned are told of your comments.
How do I pass on my comments or complaints?
You can speak to any staff member of Age UK Buckinghamshire regarding your concerns, comments or complaints.
If you would prefer to provide your comments in a letter or email, please do so. If you would prefer to speak with someone who can make a written record of your concerns for you please let us know and we will work with you to achieve this.
We will answer your concerns quickly and fairly. Your comments are important and can help us to put things right and improve services for other people.
We hope that many problems can be resolved quickly and easily through a discussion with the person concerned or their manager.
What if I am unhappy with the response I receive?
