Feedback and complaints

An AccessCare care manager and an older man have coffee and a chat on the couch.

AccessCare aims to provide you with the best services possible. If for whatever reason you are unhappy with the services you have received or have been arranged on your behalf, we welcome your feedback to improve our service.

Making a complaint is your right and will not affect the services you receive. We take complaints seriously and use the information to try to improve our service delivery.

We will address your feedback, grievance or concern in a fair, responsive and solution focused manner. 

You can involve an advocate, at any time, to speak on your behalf when making a complaint.
