We work with a wide variety of organisations to help individuals make positive changes to their lives, reduce reoffending and protect the public.

How to make a complaint
We aim to provide a high standard of service across our organisation. If we do receive a complaint, our aim is to try to resolve it as quickly, informally and satisfactorily as possible.
If BGSW Probation Services is currently supervising you and you would like to complain, we recommend you speak to the relevant senior probation officer at the probation office that manages your sentence first. Often, we can resolve the issue without the need for a formal investigation.
If you are unable to resolve the matter informally, you should send the complaint in writing to:
Kent, Surrey and Sussex Community Rehabilitation Company
Maidstone Corporate Centre
3rd Floor, Maidstone House
Please note: Service users should not use this email address to contact their case manager about their appointment or any other matter. Please telephone your case manager instead.
We will write to you, within five working days of receiving your complaint, to explain how we will handle your complaint. This letter will give you the date when you can expect the outcome of your complaint and may include a proposal to try to resolve it informally.
We may ask an appointed investigator to interview you face-to-face to find out the nature of your complaint.
If we attempt to resolve your complaint informally but we haven’t dealt with it to your satisfaction, you can still pursue the complaint formally.
If you are still not happy with the outcome of your complaint, you can appeal in writing. We will explain the appeals process in the letter we send to you in the earlier stages of your complaint.
If you are still not satisfied with the decision, the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman can investigate:
- Complaints prisoners, young people in detention (prisons and secure training centres), offenders under probation supervision and immigration detainees make
- Deaths of prisoners, young people in detention, approved premises’ residents and immigration detainees due to any cause, including apparent suicide and natural causes.
Or write to them at:
Prisons and Probation Ombudsman
10 South Colonnade
London E14 4PU
The Prisons and Probation Ombudsman will only investigate a complaint once the KSS CRC complaints process is complete.
