Children can complain too
You can complain on behalf of your children
The UN Convention on the rights of a child say:
- children have the right to be heard
- children have the right to express themselves
- children have rights, whoever they are are, wherever they come from
What to do if you are unhappy with one of your services
If you are unhappy and you would like to make a complaint, you should speak to the person in charge or another member of staff.
Tell him or her your problem. If you need help doing this, ask a friend or adult you can trust to help you.
A member of staff will try to sort out your problem straight away. Sometimes it may take longer, but he or she will let you know what is happening.
What if I am still unhappy?
If you are unhappy with how the member of staff handled your complaint, you can complain to a person called a complaints officer.
