About UsGovernanceComplaints

The complaints handling process aims to acknowledge the experience of the complainant, providing a confidential, safe and inclusive environment through which to raise and resolve the matter. The process should allow for equitable outcomes to be reached for all parties involved through open dialogue (as appropriate) and opportunities to engage external parties as required.
