Compliments , Concerns & Complaints
Weeroona values participant feedback and is committed to providing the highest quality service. The organisation will ensure that each person using the service is free to raise and have resolved any concerns or complaints he/she may have regarding the service or staff. Concerns or complaints are a basis for the determination of possible improvements to its operation.
Weeroona welcomes compliments and will use these to guide the organisation and acknowledge staffs’ contributions. Compliments can be made verbally to any staff member and also via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Weeroona documents all compliments made formally so that staff can receive acknowledgement of their good work and to show service auditors we are getting feedback.
Concerns can be raised with staff and Weeroona has a process to follow through with these. If the concern is serious, you should consider a complaint being made formally. Staff are also able to use the Concern process in relation to clients and situations.
Individuals and families have the right to complain about any aspect of Weeroona’s service they are receiving without fear of retribution and can expect all complaints to be dealt with fairly, promptly and confidentially as per Weeroona’s policy.
Weeroona has a Complaints policy that list the steps that are taken to resolve complaints. The relevant Facilitator or Manager can be contacted at any time for information and support about this process.
Individuals/families are able to nominate a support person of their choice to assist with any complaint and/or subsequent follow up.
Weeroona acknowledges the courage it takes to make a complaint and fully supports anyone a concern or complaint to Weeroona about its services. We can only grow from learning and resolving mistakes is part of that process.
