Complaints and Feedback

To improve our service, we value your feedback.  As such, the below describes the process to submit feedback and/or how to log a complaint.

We take complaints and feedback very seriously.  They help us to improve our service to make it better for the community we serve.

What is a Complaint?

A complaint is a statement, or an implication that something is unsatisfactory or unacceptable. You can send us a complaint if you are unhappy with the service or support you have received for any reason. 

Complaint management is important so that we as an organisation can address the specific needs of service users and their supporters, using deidentified information to improve services for everyone.

Complaints are not the same as feedback.

    Making an anonymous complaint

What we do when we receive a complaint 


We take your complaints very seriously. All complaints are treated the same and follow the same process in line with our complaints procedure. They will be investigated and escalated as necessary to internal departments. 


What you can expect after the complaint is investigated 


If you have provided details to be contacted, you can expect an acknowledgement of receipt between 24 and 72 hours.  Following this, the complaint is investigated and you will be notified of an outcome on completion of the investigation if you have requested to be contacted.


Where to go if you are not happy with how we have handled your complaint 


If you are unhappy with how Beyond Blue has handled your complaint or the outcome, you can contact an external agency here
