Klint is committed to being transparent and responsive to any feedback offered by our clients and community. We ensure that they have an accessible and safe avenue for providing feedback that fosters a culture which supports clients and the community to make positive comments as well as raise a complaint.
Klint will endeavour to seek an outcome in a timely manner to a complaint which is satisfactory to all parties.
The purpose of this policy is to ensure the existence of compliment and complaint management process.
To enable Klint to benefit from the complaint or compliment through ensuring that they are recorded, considered, resolved and monitored.
Ensure that all Klint employees are familiar and understand Klint’s Compliment and complaint process and that our clients are aware of their right to make a complaint and the right to have an advocate to assist them with this process.
We encourage our clients to attempt to resolve issues directly with staff member involved or relevant manager. The employee will attempt resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
Klint promptly acknowledges receipt of client complaints. We assess and prioritise complaints in accordance with the urgency and/or seriousness of the issues raised. If a matter concerns an immediate risk to safety or security, the response is immediate and is escalated appropriately.
If the complainant is not satisfied with our internal process outcome, we will provide the complainant with information about the relevant external Complaints Management Commissioners.
