If you are not satisfied with any aspect of the CAB Service, please let us know. We welcome complaints because they help us to improve our service and correct mistakes.
We treat all complaints seriously and we deal with them promptly.
We keep complaints confidential. Our advice records and our complaints records are completely separate.
If you have a complaint, you have a choice of ways to tell us about it.
First discuss your complaint with the adviser or other worker that you dealt with, so that we can try to resolve it straight away.
If the Bureau worker cannot help, or you would prefer to speak to someone else, ask for the Chief Executive or a manager.
You are welcome to ask someone else to make your complaint for you by telephone, letter or by coming into the CAB – but make sure they have your written consent first.
You can fill out the complaint form (available from any Bureau or at the Reception Desk) and send it to one of the addresses below, or write.
Please give as much detail as you can, including date and time and who was involved. Please also say what you would like us to do in response to your complaint. Ask for any help you need.
