how to complain

1. talk to the business first

First, give the business you're unhappy with a chance to put things right. They have up to eight weeks to give you an answer.

If you'd like us to contact them for you, just get in touch.

2. tell us if you're unhappy

If the business doesn't answer within eight weeks - or you're unhappy with what they say - get in touch with us.

It's probably easier for you to tell us what's happened over the phone. You can call us on 0800 023 4567 or 0300 123 9 123.

You can also get in touch online or by filling out our Word or PDF form and emailing it us.
