Whilst DASH strives to provide a quality service, it recognises that there may be times when a resident wishes to complain about an aspect of the service, or someone (a resident or non-resident) wishes to make a complaint about DASH or a suggestion about how we might improve our services.
Compliments and suggestions are always welcome. DASH recognises that complaints and suggestions can be a useful tool in evaluating and improving our service provision.
DASH is committed to ensuring that the process for customer feedback is clear, simple, and accessible. We will handle feedback in a timely and effective way and ensure that anyone providing feedback is listened to and their views acted upon where appropriate.
