Hampshire County Council is committed to providing the best possible services for people living in Hampshire. By telling us what you think about our services, you can help us to continue to improve and make sure we correct any mistakes as quickly as possible. You will not be putting your rights to services at risk, so don’t be afraid to tell us what you think or what has gone wrong.
Complaining can seem difficult, and some people worry that it might make matters worse, but by telling us, you can help us to help you. Although it may not always be possible to provide everything you want, by knowing about your complaints we can work together to try and put things right.
It is important that you let us know of your complaint as soon as it arises so it can be dealt with promptly. We may not be able to consider complaints made after one year of the event that gives reason for the complaint.
