Not entirely satisfied?

In working to represent and support you to achieve your ambitions we do our very best to provide members and stakeholders with what they deserve; high quality service to meet and perhaps even exceed their expectations.

Sometimes though, we don’t get it quite right. In order to help us improve, we want you to tell us when we make mistakes because we don’t always spot them ourselves or perhaps don’t understand how or why we have disappointed you.
