Complaints and Grievance Policy


Carer’s Network is committed to providing our clients with a high-quality service and recognizes that it is in everybody’s interest to resolve any issues quickly, discreetly, and confidentially.

Carer’s Network encourages input and feedback that contributes to the continuous improvement of our services. We provide an environment which allows a safe and comfortable platform to make complaints and offer feedback, and ensure the complainant is engaged in the process of redress.

Carer’s Network recognises there can be barriers which make it difficult to make a complaint and ensure we accommodate language, cognitive and cultural differences with the assistance of advocates or interpreters if required. We practice a culture of open communication and transparency which is both responsive and accountable.

Carer’s Network is also committed to ensuring any complaints regarding the services provided are managed in accordance with the requirements of all government acts and guidelines of the Aged Care Act 1997 and in accordance with the guidelines for Complaints Management under the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission as well as the NDIS Quality and Safeguards commission, and the Department of Health and Human Services.



The purpose of this policy is to communicate Carer’s Network’s policies and procedures to ensure feedback, complaints and grievances received are effectively handled and used as quality improvement measures via an accessible, confidential, prompt, and fair system.


“Your Voice”
