At HenderCare, we firmly believe that feedback is crucial in helping our business to grow.
With a strong focus on continuous improvement, we have recently updated our Feedback and Complaints Policy. Below is a brief FAQ to assist you in best understanding the process and how to provide feedback or lodge a complaint.
If you, or a service recipient you are supporting, wish to provide HenderCare with feedback or a complaint, we ask that you please refer to the below information. Following the below will help to ensure feedback and complaints aren’t missed and that HenderCare also ‘close the loop’ with you and ensure the situation has been addressed to your satisfaction.
