Your Right to Complain

Brain Injury Matters welcome all feedback, both positive and negative, as we continually strive to improve our services.  If you have had a negative experience of our standard of service and wish to complain we will treat your complaint in a professional, confidential and fair manner.

How do I complain?

It is important to let us know if you are unsatisfied so that we can stirve to put things right.  Speak to a Project Officer about your concerns and he/she will endeavour to sort the problem for you.  Alternatively, you may wish to speak with the Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

All staff are available to discuss complaints at the Brain Injury Matters office.  The address and phone number are at the bottom of this page.

If it is not possible to resolve your complaint with the person you are dealing with, you can address your complaint through the formal process.

Making a formal complaint

There are several ways to make a formal complaint.  You can send a letter or email directly to Joe Mc Vey, Chief Executive Officer.  The address is at the bottom of this page.  Your complaint will be investigated by the Board of Directors.  If it is upheld, you will receive a full apology, and where appropriate, be given details of any resulting actions taken by Brain Injury Matters.

Brain Injury Matters aim to respond to complaints within one week. However, if the issue is complicated, any delay will be explained and you will be kept informed of progress.

Review of your complaint

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint, you are entitled to ask for a further review.  The review will be conducted under the direction of the Board of Directors on the date of their next meeting; the date of which you will be informed of.  You may also ask for your complaint to be looked at by an Independent Adjudicator.

Review by an Adjudicator

Finally, your complaint may go to a person who is entirely seperate from Brain Injury Matters.  If you want to progress to this stage, you may contact The Charity Commission Northern Ireland for them to review the complaint independently.  Contact details can be found on their website, where there is also a complaint form which can be completed online:
