Step 2

Stage 1

You can get independent advice from the Citizens Advice Bureau, Consumer Advice Centre and Trading Standards. Whilst we’re happy to work together with the above independent organisations, if you decide you need their help to resolve your complaint, we would always want you to come to us first, as most problems can be resolved quickly this way.

Stage 2

Contact Ombudsman Services

If after contacting us we have not resolved your complaint within 8 weeks or if there is a deadlock situation, you may refer your complaint to Ombudsman Services, free of charge. Deadlock arises when we believe we have done everything we can to resolve your complaint but can’t reach an agreement with you. You must have followed our escalation process before you can request a deadlock and we will be unable to send a deadlock letter if we are still working to resolve your complaint or if your complaint falls outside the remit of Ombudsman Services. Ombudsman Services is an independent dispute resolution scheme, approved by Ofcom. Please ensure that you read Ombudsman Services guidelines to ensure that your complaint satisfies the conditions for referral. If your complaint satisfies these conditions, then you must contact Ombudsman Services within six years of first complaining to us. In a case of deadlock, then you must contact Ombudsman Services within 12 months of deadlock being issued. When your complaint goes through Ombudsman Services, an independent assessor will review your complaint and make a decision about how to settle it. Details of the service are available by contacting us or Ombudsman Services directly: Ombudsman Services: Communications PO Box 730 Warrington WA4 6WU Tel: 0330 440 1614 Website: https://www.ombudsman-services.org/complain-now
