comments, compliments, complaints
Let us know how we're doing: comments, compliments, and complaints. The Kairos Rehabilitation Trust makes every effort to provide a high standard of service and to treat all users individually and fairly. We continuously try to improve our services and we value any feedback that will help us to do this.
Kairos will review all comments, feedback and complaints, and our feedback procedures on an annual basis. This helps us to develop the services that work best for you, so please let us know what you think. We report on user feedback in the charity’s annual report.
Compliments and Comments:
At the end of workshops we ask you to complete a feed-back form on your experience. We are of course keen to hear your comments also at other times, please speak to one of the staff members/
volunteers, email or write to us. On leaving the service we will ask you to complete our Satisfaction Questionnaire.
We also want to know if there is any part of our service that you are unhappy with. We take all feedback seriously and we will take action when appropriate to do so. All complaints will be dealt with in a timely and professional manner. Please note that Kairos may publish the replies given to any queries raised, but will respect the confidentiality of the individuals concerned.
How to make a complaint: The first thing to do if you are unhappy about any aspect of our services is to bring this to the attention of one of the Kairos staff members/volunteers. They will try to resolve your concerns immediately. If you are unhappy at the way you have been treated by one of the staff members/volunteers please contact us.
If you cannot or do not wish to make a complaint in person, you have the option of emailing, writing or telephoning us.
What you can do to help us deal effectively and quickly with your complaint: Contact us as soon as possible giving clear details so we can endeavour to resolve the issue by completing our Comments, Compliments and Complaints form.
