St. Leger Homes of Doncaster aims to provide the highest standard of service to all our customers, however we accept, that on occasions, there may be a cause to complain. We also recognise that customers have a right to complain about the provision, or non-provision, of services.
As such, we aim to provide an accessible, fair and effective complaints procedure for tenants, leaseholders, Housing Register applicants and other customers. We take all complaints seriously as it is an important part of our commitment to provide a high standard of customer care.
This allows us to learn from our mistakes by regularly monitoring complaints. We can then continuously improve the way we work in delivering our services in order to meet our customers’ needs.
