Advocacy & rights

It is vital for the needs of the caring community to be clearly understood by those individuals and organisations sanctioned to support carers. Carers have a right to complain if they are concerned about the delivery of a service to their family or the person they support. 

All services have a complaints procedure. Legally, a service cannot hold it against you if you complain. Click here to view Carers WA's Complaints Policy.

If you have a complaint about a service or organisation, contact them or visit their website to find out their complaints procedure.  There may be a specific person you need to contact or a form you need to complete.

If you have tried complaining to a person or organisation and do not feel that you have received a suitable response, there are a number of organisations who can help you to follow up your concerns.
