If you have made a complaint and do not feel it has been dealt with adequately, please contact our Customer Complaints Co-ordinator either directly (contact details below) or via the national number on 0300 123 9000. Your complaint will be independently investigated and a full reply provided.

If you are unhappy with the response from the Complaints Co-ordinator, you can then refer your complaint to our Chief Executive to ask for a review. The Corporate Office will independently review your concerns afresh and provide a detailed response.

If you have followed steps one, two and three but are not satisfied that we have adequately dealt with your complaint, you may ask to have your case investigated by our Department’s Independent Complaints Assessor, by contacting VOSA’s Corporate Office.
