What the results tell us

Complainants’ satisfaction improved overall this quarter. Our casework assurance process and complainant feedback scores both showed improvements in how we explain to complainants what concerns we will look into. However, complainants’ satisfaction with how we explain our decisions fell to 50% in this quarter. We will explore the cause behind this.
