Complaints, feedback and comments

Our supporters are at the heart of what we do, so we are committed to doing our very best to offer a quality service.

At Centrepoint we are always looking for ways we can improve and welcome any complaints, feedback and comments and therefore we want to hear about any instances where people think our service could be improved.
