POhWER takes feedback seriously and we use it as part of our commitment to continually improving our services.

Receiving compliments is lovely but we also want and need to hear where we could have done better so we can put anything right that’s gone wrong.

If you use one of our services, are a professional we interact with, or are one of our stakeholders, we have specific links below so that you can tell us what you think.

Thank you for taking the time to do this.

What we’ll do if you make a complaint:

If you make a complaint, we will acknowledge it within two working days of receiving it. Unless you have asked us not to contact you, a manager will be in touch with you within 5 working days of this acknowledgement to discuss your complaint and how we will be responding to it. Unless otherwise agreed with you, we will provide you with a response to your complaint no more than 20 working days later. If you are not happy with this response, there is an appeal process which will be explained to you with the response.
