We value your feedback
We are committed to providing quality services to all of our clients, but accept that everyone’s experience with us is different. If you have any feedback or concerns, we will listen and act.
In the first instance, clients should provide their feedback to the relevant Service Leader. Contact details for our Service Leaders are listed (per program) at the bottom of this page.
If you are not satisfied following this, you can

- lodge a written complaint to the Managing Director at PO Box 631, Buddina, QLD 4575.
Clients who make a complaint can do so without the fear of retribution, and have the right to be taken seriously, treated with respect and to receive feedback within a reasonable time frame.
