Service update in light of the Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak

In light of the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic we are having to work differently. 

  • Our phone lines are busier than usual. You can call us between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday but it’s likely that you will need to wait to speak to someone. Where possible, please email us if you have an enquiry about an ongoing case or take a look at our how to complain page, which includes detail of how to send us your complaint online.

  • We have limited access to our office and are unable to process post in the usual way. Please only send us post if you’re unable to email or make a complaint online. It may take us longer than usual to respond to enquiries received by post.

  • It’s taking longer than we’d like to allocate cases to our case handlers for investigation. We’re working to improve waiting times and will contact you when once a case handler has been assigned to your case. We’d be grateful if you could avoid contacting us for an update, unless your circumstances have changed. You can read more about timescales once you’ve sent us a complaint on our page how long it takes.

There was already a high demand for our service. Inevitably, Covid-19 will have an impact on the time we take to do things. But we’re working hard to continue to provide a high level of service, and we’re continuing to resolve complaints.Find out more about our approach to complaints that might be caused or affected by Covid-19.

If your complaint has been allocated and you have the contact details of the case handler, you can still contact them directly.
