Origin Sports Complaints Procedure

If you have a complaint about our organisation we want to hear about it and we will do our best to put it right.

Our Customer Complaints Procedure has the following goals:

  • To deal with complaints fairly, efficiently and effectively;
  • To ensure that all complaints are handled in a consistent manner throughout;
  • To increase customer satisfaction;
  • To use complaints constructively in the planning and improvement of all services.

Who can complain?

Anyone who is:

  • Receiving a service from the Origin Sports;
  • Caring for someone who has a complaint;
  • Has been refused a service from Origin Sports for reasons which they feel are discriminatory.

How to complain

Origin Sports would like to sort out any complaint as soon as possible.

Many complaints can be resolved informally. In the first instance contact us and, if you feel able, speak to the member of staff who is working with you or ask to speak to the relevant head coach, who will try to sort the matter out.

If you make contact in person or by phone, make a note of the name of the person you speak to. If a solution is offered at this point, make a note of this as well.

If you are not satisfied or do not wish an informal solution, you may pursue a formal complaint.

Complaints can be made to Ian Malone.

He can be contacted via email at ian@originsports.org.uk

Telephone: 0773 252 3420 

At this time, the centers that we operate out of are not able to accept postal deliveries on the behalf of Origin Sports. However, letters of complaint delivered in person will be passed on to the relevant person to review and respond to the complaint in a timely fashion.

What Happens Next?

You will receive an acknowledgement of your complaint within 5 working days. You may be contacted to make sure that we have understood your complaint properly. You may be interviewed by the person investigating the complaint.

You will receive a response to your complaint within 28 working days of its receipt. Any extension of this time limit requires your consent.

Does this always happen?

In all cases, a complaint will be given full and fair consideration.

However, if as a result of your complaint, disciplinary proceedings are taken against a member of staff, an internal procedure will apply. You will be informed that disciplinary proceedings have taken place, but as these proceedings are confidential, you will only be informed of the details or outcome of matters outside of this procedure.

If a criminal offence is alleged, then the police will be informed.

Can you have someone with you when your complaint is discussed?

Yes, you can.
