Complaints can often be a result of a misunderstanding which can often be resolved quickly by providing further information. As such in the first instance we would always like the opportunity to discuss any concerns over the telephone 0800 777 8888 or email your dedicated case worker at Thesecretvalley.com direct.
If we are unable to resolve your concerns to your satisfaction then please put your complaint in writing. You can email this to us as follows: email firstname.lastname@example.org.
On receipt of a complaint from any source the details are passed to our Complaints Officer for acknowledging and further investigation. If the Complaints Officer is the person being complained about the details of the complaint will be passed to another person who is more senior or equally senior to the Complaints Officer.
