Compliments and Complaints

The Community Advice Hubs aim to provide a consistently high level of service to residents in the Borough of Solihull. The Community Advice Hubs are managed by Age UK Solihull and adhere to its policies and procedures. The Charity’s complaints and compliments policy is designed to protect those that the Charity exists to help; to be responsive to the views of everyone concerned with the welfare of people in later life; to assist in the review and improvement of its services; and also to provide a fair hearing for anyone against whom a complaint is made.

Any positive feedback received due to the provision of good service by either a team or an individual will be passed on to the person(s) concerned and a record kept on their personnel/volunteer file. Any positive feedback received from service users, their relatives and their carers, will be acknowledged.

Compliments and positive feedback can be received via our homepage or via email at
