What to do if you have a complaint
How you feel about having used a service is important. Services often ask you for feedback about your experience. This is to help them understand how to make sure people they work with have a good experience.
If you have feedback about this service, something you liked or were not happy with, you can talk to the person who worked with you or, if you feel more comfortable, a service manager. They will try to help sort out any problems.
If you are still not happy with the service you can raise your concerns formally. This means someone who is not part of the service will look at your feedback or concern and see if anything can or needs to be done to help make things better.
If you need to make a formal complaint you can use the London Borough of Hackney complaints procedure.
