Complaints Policy

Gilcore views complaints as an opportunity to learn and improve for the future, as well as a chance to put things right for the person or organisation that has made the complaint.

Gilcore maintains and enacts a complaints policy. Our policy is designed to:

  • Provide a fair complaints procedure which is clear and easy to use for anyone wishing to make a complaint

  • Ensure everyone at Gilcore knows what to do if a complaint is received

  • Ensure all complaints are investigated fairly and in a timely fashion

  • Ensure that complaints are, wherever possible, resolved and that relationships are repaired

  • Gather information which helps us to improve what we do

Written complaints from member of the public be sent to Gilcore Ltd. at 71-75 Shelton Street, London, Greater London WC2H 9JQ or by e-mail at We ask that when lodging a complaint a complainant tries to include as much information as possible, the below information will certainly be helpful to our investigation:

  • First person account of complaint
  • Date of incident
