Client Feedback Service
Last published 06 Nov 2019
The Client Feedback Service lets us know what you think about the services we provide. Information is collected about compliments, suggestions or complaints so we can improve our services to our clients.
Client feedback is not the same as disagreeing with a decision we have made. We have a separate process for dealing with a request to have a decision reviewed. For more information please see Appeals and reviewing decisions.
Your feedback is essential because it allows us to monitor our performance and effectiveness. It also helps us determine what is working well and where we need to change or improve our service.
What we would like to receive feedback about
- compliments on how a service was delivered to you and services that you were happy with
- when staff and contractors were helpful, listened to you and provided good service
- suggestions that can help improve our services
- concerns you may have about your neighbourhood such as antisocial behaviour, property care issues, unauthorised alterations or illegal activity
You can also lodge a complaint about
- the services we provide
- the way you have been treated by staff and contractors, including rude or dismissive behaviour
- contractor conduct, for example not turning up to appointments or not providing information on how to protect your health and safety
- the way we use or disclose your personal information (including health information)
How do I provide feedback?
You can provide feedback by:
To report fraud or misconduct by staff, contractors or clients use the online report fraud or misconduct form.
How we respond to complaints
Complaints will be acknowledged and reviewed, usually within 15 working days.
The person managing the complaint will tell you:
- the outcome of the complaint, or
- if there will be a delay in reviewing the complaint.
What if I am unhappy about the outcome?
Complaints regarding a privacy issue may take up to 60 days to be completed. For more information about how a complaint is managed see the Client Service Delivery and Appeals Policy.
If you are unhappy with the outcome or the way a complaint has been managed, you should first contact your local office to discuss the matter. You can also contact an external agency such as the NSW Ombudsman, the Tenancy Advocacy Service or a Community Justice Centre. If your complaint was about a privacy issue you can contact the Information and Privacy Commission NSW.
