Section: 5.0 Service Provision
Policy: 5.6 Victim Complaints
VSRC shall provide and make accessible a process to encourage the resolution of complaints relating to the rights of victims. No victim shall be penalized for lodging a complaint.
Victims who wish to complain about the actions of an employee or volunteer should direct their complaint to the ED.
If the ED’s response to the complaint is unsatisfactory, or if the complaint is about the ED, the victim should then direct their complaint to the Executive of the Board of Directors.
Victims who wish to complain about the actions of a Board member should direct their complaint to the Executive of the Board of Directors.
If the complaint concerns a member of the Executive, that member shall remove themselves from the Executive discussion of the complaint.
The decision of the Executive of the Board of Directors shall be final.
Complaints should be documented and signed. VSRC representative hearing the complaint should assist the victim with placing the complaint in writing if necessary.
All information concerning a complaint is confidential. Only parties involved in resolving the complaint should have information about the complaint. Documentation will be filed in the ED’s office, not in victim files. (Unless the complaint is about the ED in which case the documentation will be held by the Board).
No victim shall be penalized or have their access to services affected by accessing the complaints process.
Information about this policy and copies of the complaint forms should be widely accessible to all victims.
