Making a complaint about DLGSC

We want to know if a product or service does not meet your expectations. If you are dissatisfied with DLGSC staff, products or services you may make a complaint to us. In most cases, we can only accept a complaint from the affected person. If you are unable to act for yourself, we may accept a complaint from a representative. We may ask for written confirmation from you that you are happy for the representative to act on your behalf.

DLGSC acknowledges that children and young people are a legitimate complainant and the safety and wellbeing of children and young people are paramount. Complaints from children and young people may be made in person and through a support person.

Before you make a complaint, we ask that you first try to resolve the matter with the relevant staff member or division.

Once we receive your complaint, we:

  • handle your concern in a confidential manner
  • consider your complaint carefully
  • keep you informed on the progress of your complaint
  • provide you with reasons for any decisions made
  • use your complaint to help us improve our products and services.
