Fremantle Feedback - Compliments and Complaints
Our aim is to ensure that the quality of The Fremantle Trust's services continuously improves. As part of our quality assurance we have a formal process for complaints and compliments, this is called Fremantle Feedback.
The Fremantle Trust is committed to promoting the independence, rights and lifestyle of everyone who uses our services. We are dedicated to delivering quality care and support and to listening to the views and concerns of the people who use our services, their relatives and other stakeholders.
This is our formal way of making sure that all channels for complaints, comments and compliments are open to everyone using our services and that everyone is aware of who to talk to. You do not have to put complaints in writing, just tell us!
To make sure we are doing our job properly, we need to hear from you.
- We want you to tell us when you think we’ve got things wrong, so we can put them right
- If you are not sure about something, we want you to ask, so we can give you the answer
- If you have an idea to improve the service we would be delighted to hear from you
- If you think we are doing well, praise is always welcome
- If you wish, we will arrange for an advocate to act on your behalf
We promise to:
- listen carefully and treat you respectfully
- communicate with you in a sensitive, fair and timely way
- explain how we intend to resolve the complaint, and the likely timescale involved
- investigate thoroughly and whenever possible have complaints reviewed by someone not involved in the events leading to the complaint
- reply honestly
- do our best to put things right, if they have gone wrong
- apologise if we have made a mistake
- not discriminate against anyone making a complaint
FEEDBACK - Either

- We will endeavour to resolve complaints as far as is reasonably practical
