Independent Resident Complaints Panel
The Independent Resident Complaints Panel is made up of residents from rented and homeownership locations and can provide an impartial view on how a complaint has been handled by Anchor following receipt of the final complaint response from Anchor as part of the complaints procedure.
If a resident decides to ask the Panel to look at their complaint, the Panel will review all the correspondence relating to the matter and provide a response based on how they feel the case has been handled.
As part of this response, recommendations can and are made to Anchor asking the organisation to reflect upon actions taken, or the panel may signpost the complainant to the relevant bodies for further review.
