Compliments and Complaints
Community Connect Transport respects all the rights of all individuals to provide compliments, complaints and feedback, and actively encourages feedback, even in the form of a complaint, in order to identify and resolve issues and facilitate opportunities for service improvement.
As such we encourage feedback regarding our services, staff, vehicles, webpage, documentation and any other issue related to our work. We see feedback as a tool for process improvement, and foster a “no blame” culture.
All complaints are managed confidentially, fairly, promptly and without discrimination.
We recognise and promote the right of all clients and their advocates to complain without fear of retribution or compromising the quality of the service they receive. Employees and volunteers are also encouraged to identify problems and make complaints of appropriate nature. They also do so without fear of repercussions.
In the first instance the person is encouraged to raise their compliment or complaint either by filling in the appropriate form (Compliments Form QSE 22.214.171.124 or Complaints Form QSE 126.96.36.199) or speak with the team member concerned if they feel comfortable about doing this.
