Complaints Learning Forum

Manningham Housing Association’s Complaints Learning Forum runs twice per year and is an independent panel who have two main roles which are to:

  1. Provide an avenue for complainants to escalate their complaint when they are not happy with how their complaint has been dealt with and would like to appeal it.
  2. Provide a forum where customers and staff take a proactive approach to reviewing how complaints are dealt with in order to improve the Association’s complaints handling process.

Members are volunteers from the Customer Panel.
