Our new report shares the insight from a number of our investigations to help councils reflect on and improve their services to victims of domestic abuse.

If you want to make a complaint:

  • Please first read our step by step process for making a complaint. If you have, please use our complaint form to register your complaint. By complaining online, you help us to keep our telephone helpline for people who need general advice or cannot use the complaint form

  • If you cannot use the complaint form, you can call our helpline on 0300 061 0614. It is open between 10am and midday on Monday, and 10am to 4pm, Tuesday to Friday, except on public holidays. Lines are often quieter in the afternoon so we may be able to help you more quickly if you call then

  • It will take a little longer to reach us, but you can make a new complaint by post

If you have an existing complaint:

  • Please contact your named person on their direct contact details

  • If you do not have a named person, we will contact you when we have an update on your case. Please avoid calling our helpline so we can keep it for people who need general advice or help make a new complaint

If you need general advice on the complaints process:
