Compliments, Comments and Complaints

Bournemouth Borough Council aims to provide a wide range of high quality services. Your feedback is very important to us, we like to hear when we are doing something well. But we realise that there may be times when you are unhappy with a service or you just might want to make a comment about how we can improve it.


How to make a Compliment, Comment or Complaint

  • Completing the ‘Your Voice’ Compliments, Comments and Complaints Form available from any Council office.
  • Completing our online Comments, Compliments and Complaints form.
  • Contact the relevant department. Please use the A-Z to locate the department’s contact details.


We believe that the people who can best deal with a complaint are those that provide the service. The relevant Service Unit will investigate your complaint and try to resolve the complaint as soon as possible. Please visit the Complaints Procedure page| for more information.


Adult Social Care Complaints: Adult Social Care complaints need to follow the statutory complaints process. Please visit the Social Care complaints page| for more information.
