Compliments, Complaints and Anti-Social Behaviour

CHADD prides itself on getting things right, however we know that sometimes things can go wrong. If your experience with CHADD has been an unhappy one, it is important to let us know so we can improve. Similarly if you have had a pleasant experience, we would love to hear about it. We have also added information on how to deal with any complaints around Anti-Social Behaviour.

Service Complaints

What is a complaint?

A complaint is when you feel that the CHADD has let you down in some way, e.g. we have not provided the service promised in your Tenancy or Licence Agreement, or Support Agreement or a member of staff has been rude or unhelpful. If you are unsure, please read our Complaints Procedure by clicking here.

Please note that reporting a faulty appliance or a blocked drain is not a complaint, it is a request for a repair to be carried out.

What to do if you have a complaint

You can complain verbally or in writing, either way it will be taken seriously.  If you wish, a friend or representative can help and support you in making your complaint. Here is how you can complain.

What to do if you are not happy with the outcome of the complaint

Usually our Complaints Procedure helps resolve any complaints that we receive, however if you feel that your complaint is still not resolved your issue or you are still not happy, you have the right to appeal to the Housing Ombudsman at
