We encourage you to give us feedback through our Customer First Feedback System to:

Issues raised are kept confidential and discussed only with the people who need to be involved.

We will deal with complaints effectively, promptly and without prejudice or bias.

Our Commitment

We will:

Steps you can take

Here are some steps you can take which will help us to help you.

Act quickly: please tell us about any issue as soon as you can. Facts can become less clear if you wait, making it harder to find a solution.

Go direct at first: many concerns can be resolved easily by the staff member/s you initially dealt with.

Make it clear: put the events in order. Use dates and descriptions of incidents, phone calls, letters or meetings. Tell us what action you would like us to take.

Tackle the problem, not the person: please remember that what happened may have been a mistake or an oversight that would not usually happen.

Independent Help

If you have a complaint that you do not wish to raise directly with us, or after dealing with us you are not satisfied with the outcome, you may complain to the Ombudsman.

The Ombudsman is an independent and impartial person who investigates complaints about Western Australian government departments, statutory authorities and local governments. The Ombudsman reports directly to the Parliament of Western Australia – not to the sitting government.
