How We Handle Complaints
There is a statutory procedure for handling complaints made by, or on behalf of, people who use Social Care and Health Services and Vulnerable Children's Services within the Directorate for Children, Young People and Families. Leaflets are available from the county council's Directorate for Children, Young People and Families and the Social Care and Health Directorate. They explain how your 'Compliments, Comments and Complaints' will be dealt with under these regulations.
In addition, there is also a statutory process for complaints relating to decisions about the assessment of pupils with special educational needs. This falls outside the county council's complaints procedure, but further details can be obtained from the Directorate for Children, Young People and Families.
How to make a complaint about a Member of the County Council
If you are unhappy about the way a Member of the County Council has behaved, you may complain to the Monitoring Officer of Staffordshire County Council.
Alternatively, you can also make a complaint about a Member of Parliament (MP).
