Trident Group is committed to giving you the best service possible, but if something goes wrong, we want you to tell us. We value complaints and use the information from them to help us improve our services. The information below describes our complaints process and how to make a complaint.
What is a complaint?
A complaint is when you as our resident or customer are dissatisfied about our action or lack of action, or about the standard of service provided by us or on our behalf.
What kind of things can I complain about?
- If we take a long time to respond to any of your enquiries
- If you think we have failed to provide a good service
- If any of our staff or contractors have delivered a bad service
- If we failed to follow our procedures properly
What can’t I complain about?
- Neighbour nuisance – this will be dealt with by our housing or care/support staff in accordance to the Anti-Social Behaviour Policy
- Health and safety concerns – these will be dealt by a Senior Manager in the 1st instance for rectification
- Where there are safeguarding issues – these will be dealt in accordance to the Safeguarding Policy
- If there is pending legal action against Trident Group
- If it is an attempt to re-open a previously concluded complaint
- Complaint about the conduct of our staff or contractors – this will be managed in accordance with Trident Group’s Code of Conduct
How do I make a complaint?
You can complain in person at our offices or services, by phone, email, letter or through our website.
What happens with my complaint?
We have a two stage process in managing and resolving a complaint, which is explained below:
Trident Group will provide advice to complainants on accessing the Housing Ombudsman’s Service, who can assist throughout the life of a complaint.
What if I need support to make a complaint?
You can make a complaint through an external representative such as an MP, a Councillor, friend, family member, solicitor or via Citizens Advice. If you are receiving support from our services, then one of our staff members will assist you to the best of their ability. They will remain objective and not involve themselves in the investigation except to support and advocate you, wherever required.
