What to do if you are unhappy with any of the services provided by ERIC 

ERIC aims to provide high quality services that meet the needs of parents, carers, practitioners and families who contact us whether online, by telephone or in person. These include our dedicated Helpline, training services, fundraising and online shop. We believe we achieve this most of the time but please let us know if we are not getting it right. We can only improve and maintain our high standards if you let us know how we are doing. 

If you are unhappy about any aspect of our services or the conduct of any of our staff or volunteers, please speak to the person concerned straightaway. By raising your concern as soon as it arises, it is easier to clarify any misunderstanding or resolve matters quickly and informally.  

Your feedback will be dealt with more swiftly if you are able to contact the right team, please see Contact Us for details.
