Valuing Complaints is the SPSO’s Complaints Standards Authority (CSA) website. It provides a centre for best practice in complaints handling. It contains information to help support improvement in public sector complaints handling, including: model complaints handling procedures (CHPs) for Scotland; implementation and compliance guidance; and best practice and training resources.
This website includes a community forum which aims to generate discussion and sharing of best practice amongst the professional complaints handling community, both within and between different sectors. We aim to facilitate effective and professional social networking amongst complaints handlers and create a forum that supports the sharing of experiences and learning in complaints handling.
We hope you find this website useful and we look forward to supporting you to develop a culture that values complaints as a driver of improvement in the delivery of public services.
