Making a complaint

How do I make a complaint?

We’re sorry that you’re not happy with our service. By making a complaint, you’re giving us the opportunity to investigate and improve our services for everybody.

If you have Online Banking, the best way to complain is to log in and communicate via Secure Message – it’s quick, easy and secure.

If you don’t have Online Banking, or don’t have an account with us, you can drop us a quick note through our online form and we’ll call you back to discuss. If you’d prefer, you can call or write to us instead.
