Not sure where to start? Often it is easier to speak with someone in person. Please email us, provide your contact details, and we can phone you back for a chat. We develop an idea of your situation, and that helps us point you in the right direction.

We actively encourage everyone using Intereach services to question or comment on the quality and nature of the service. This allows us to continually improve our services and we endeavour at all times to make sure that any comments or complaints are acknowledged and resolved as quickly as possible.

If you would like to send us some positive feedback, please use the phone, fax or postal details on the above or use the email form below.

All people have a fundamental right to lodge a complaint about any aspect of the service that they are not satisfied with. These complaints are viewed seriously and in complete confidentiality. They are dealt with fairly and equitably and in accordance with the Intereach Complaint Handling Policy.

When should I raise a complaint?

Raise a complaint as soon as you become aware of an issue that needs addressing. It is recommended that you do not allow the complaint to build as the more time that elapses, the more difficult it may be to resolve.

With whom should I raise my complaint?

You have the right to raise your complaint with any Intereach staff member. When you make a complaint we will work with you to identify what you would like Intereach to do to resolve the complaint and who you would like to have as your key contact while the complaint is being resolved. Your issue will be documented and in some instances will be resolved immediately.

For non-urgent issues, you will be contacted within two business days. If you consider your issue to be of an urgent nature, every effort will be made to contact you within one business day.

If the issue is of a complex nature, you may need to arrange a time with the program manager to discuss your issues without feeling stressed or rushed. This will also allow the program manager to concentrate fully on the complaint. You may also choose to bring an advocate or a family member with you.

How do I lodge a complaint?

In person: Make an appointment with the relevant program manager at your nearest Intereach office
Phone: 1300 488 226 and speak with the relevant program manager
Email: complaints@intereach.com.au
Letter: PO Box 501, Deniliquin, NSW 2710
Fax: 03 5881 5440
