Your views are important to us and we appreciate any feedback about our service. If we make a mistake we would love to know about it so we can rectify it.
We promise to investigate your complaint and will resolve problems as quickly as we can, keeping you informed every step of the way.
We take all complaints seriously and use any lessons learned to improve the way we do things.
Making a Complaint
Please contact our Compliance Officer, Angela Lacey, as soon as you can with details of your problem.
Our team will aim to give you an answer there and then, but if this is not possible, we will take details from you and you can be assured that we will conduct a full investigation.
You can contact us in whichever way you prefer:
314-316 Bournemouth Road
By phone: 01202 754927
By email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If we cannot resolve your complaint straight away due to a need to conduct a more in-depth investigation then we may need a little more time. We will always aim to give a ‘final response’ within eight weeks but if this is not possible for any reason then we will discuss this with you and give you an explanation of why and an indication of how much longer our investigation is likely to take.
We hope that you'll never have to do this, but if you're not happy with the way we’ve handled your complaint, the outcome of it, or if eight weeks have passed and we have not sent you our final response, you may (subject to their eligibility rules) have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service.
You can contact them in one of the following ways:
