How we offer support and guidance

We have a variety of guidance and resources available for public sector organisations in Scotland.

These will help you in complying with the Model Complaint Handling Procedure (MCHP) and provide additional advice and support for handling complaints well and learning from them.

Please follow the links below to access the resources.


If you require any of our leaflets in other languages and formats (such as large print, audio, BSL, Braille, or a different file format for use with assistive technology), please contact us to ask for a leaflet in another language or format.
