Firstchance encourages a culture of continuous improvement and sees feedback and complaints as important opportunities to improve practices, find solutions and make improvements.

Parents/carers and other external stakeholders are encouraged to provide feedback or make a complaint if dissatisfied or where they see opportunities for Firstchance to improve.

Our policy provides a framework for people to provide feedback or make a complaint and for Firstchance staff members to work within to resolve complaints promptly and effectively.

To cater for individual needs there are two versions of our Complaint Form:
