Implementing a quality complaint management system - community services
This workshop provides an overview of the essential elements for an effective complaint handling system in the community services sector.
Using the Australian Standard for complaint handling as a reference, participants are given guidance about what good complaint policies and systems should look like. We examine cultural and organisational issues relating to complaints, and provide an opportunity to learn how to use complaints to improve service delivery. Participants are given the chance to apply what they have learned by reviewing their own organisation’s complaint handling systems.
