Making a complaint

At Become we are committed to improving the lives of children in care and young care leavers and we work hard to give everyone the best possible service we can. If you are unhappy about any aspect of our work, we would like to hear about it. We value and welcome all types of feedback, good or bad.

The complaints procedure

If you want to make a complaint to Become, you can find details of our complaints procedure here. Please then contact us by:

We will acknowledge and provide an initial response to your complaint within five working days of receiving it. We expect to be able to resolve most complaints within that timeframe, but if we need to conduct a more in-depth investigation, we will aim to provide you with a full response as soon as possible. If we are unable to meet our planned deadlines due to exceptional circumstances, we will of course let you know.

If you are not happy with our response, please let us know as soon as possible. Your complaint will be referred to a senior member of staff, who will carry out a review and let you know the outcome.
