What will happen next?
Your complaint will be passed to Mandie Adams, our Liaison Officer, who will let you know that we have received it within three days.
A manager at Bron Afon will look at the complaint and they may call or visit you at home to find out all the details.
We will then investigate the complaint and follow this up with a letter. We aim to deal with all complaints within ten working days.
This is stage one.

We aim to resolve any outstanding issues quickly, to improve communication, give an apology when one is due and make sure we learn from the complaint.
What if you are not happy with the response or want to appeal?
If you are not satisfied with our response or want to appeal just let us know. You can contact us on any of the ways listed above.
Once we receive this we will be in touch to let you know how you can take your complaint to the second stage. The second stage will be dealt with by either a director or head of service.
If you still remain dissatisfied by the stage two investigation then you can escalate your complaint to stage three. Your complaint will then be considered by a Sub-committee panel which is made up from the Board members. You can find the guidence notes for stage 3 here.
