Once your complaint has been fully dealt with by Elizabeth Finn Homes Limited if you are not satisfied with the outcome you can refer your complaint to the Local Government Ombudsman (LGO) and ask for it to be reviewed.  The LGO provides a free, independent service.

The LGO team can be contacted for information and advice or to register a complaint:

Telephone:  0330 061 0614

The LGO will not usually investigate a complaint until the provider has had an opportunity to respond and resolve matters.

Our service is registered with and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).  The CQC cannot get involved in individual complaints about providers, but is happy to receive information about services at any time.  You can contact the CQC at:
