Helpful Contacts

In some cases, you may not agree about a decision or the way in which a support service is provided to you or the person you care for.

It is important to know where you can go to find appropriate advice and guidance.

You can access information through your local authority or health board, who will also have their own resolution and complaints handling procedure.
