Complaints about the Gambling Commission
The volume, nature and outcome of complaints is one indicator of stakeholder satisfaction in our work.
We record complaints received and handled under our complaints policy . We record the stage at which the complaint was resolved and the outcome.
We aim to conduct our regulatory activity in a manner which minimises the number of complaints received and upheld. Where we do receive complaints, we aim to handle them in an efficient and professional manner. We learn lessons from complaints and report numbers, issues and outcomes quarterly to the Executive team and annually to the Audit and Risk Committee.
