THROUGHOUT THE COMPLAINT PROCESS WE WILL BE FAIR, HONEST, TRANSPARENT AND PROFESSIONAL.
IF YOU HAVE A COMPLAINT, LET US TAKE CARE OF IT FOR YOU.We are really sorry you are not happy, we want to sort things out for you quickly. We work hard to try and stop things going wrong so that you do not have to complain, but we know we are not perfect and when things are not right, we need you to tell us. This page sets out the steps on how you can complain to us, and what you can expect to happen.
How to raise a complaint:
Step 1 – Contact us directly
Let us know what the problem is.
We will make every effort to get your complaint sorted on the same day you make contact with us, but please be aware, sometimes it can take a little longer.
Please contact our Customer Services Team at [email protected] or write directly to [email protected].
If you have contacted us by email, social media or by letter and haven’t had a response within 7-working days, then please contact our Customer Service Team directly by calling our FREEPHONE 0800 103 2702 or emailing us at [email protected].
If you prefer, you can write to us at: Outfox the Market, 16, North Mills, Frog Island, Leicester, LE3 5DL. You can even come and see us in person if you wish, but please call first to make an appointment.
Step 2 – Dedicated support
If we are unable to resolve your complaint when you first contact us, our dedicated Customer Service Team will continue to review your complaint and take responsibility for it until it is resolved. We aim to resolve all complaints where possible within 15–days
What happens when you raise a complaint?
We will try to resolve your complaint as quickly as possible and if it isn’t something we can solve right away we may complete an internal review and have more questions for you. The outcome will always result in one or more of the following:
- An apology
- An explanation
- Appropriate remedial action(s)
- A financial award given the circumstance(s)
What happens if we are unable to resolve your complaint within eight weeks or cannot reach a satisfactory resolution?
We will write to you to let you know you have the right to pass your complaint to the Energy Ombudsman.
The Energy Ombudsman is totally independent and there to help sort out disputes between energy
suppliers and their customers. It is free to use their services and they make their decision based only on
the information available.
We work closely with the Energy Ombudsman to ensure the resolutions we provide are fair and consistent. It’s best you work with us as your supplier in the first instance to reach an agreement. You can request your required remedy directly from us to give us a chance to help you resolve things quickly.
