Resolving your complaint

If you’re unhappy with our service, we’re sorry and we’d like to put it right.

Our call centre agents are here to put things right for you straight away. If they can’t, they’ll take the details of your complaint and log it for you. Within 5 business days, you will be appointed a Resolution Advocate, who will look after you until everything is sorted. Your Resolution Advocate will let you know how long it should take to resolve your complaint and will agree how and when you would like to be updated to make things as easy as possible for you.

Your Resolution Advocate will send you a final response once they have concluded their investigation into your complaint. The final response will provide you with a resolution and inform as to whether your complaint is upheld or not upheld.

The resolution of your complaint might include actions to put our mistake right, an apology, explanation or non-financial compensation.

If we’ve not resolved your complaint within 8 weeks, we’ll write to you. You can then pass your complaint to Financial Ombudsman Service.
