Our mission is to resolve complaints, prevent the common causes of complaints, and enable quality improvement.
Our vision is that ‘every client receives a professional service, and every lawyer adheres to professional standards’.
We have four strategic aims to achieve our ambition to be an efficient and effective complaints and improvement body, delivering a quality service. Our aims are to:
- Respond to the challenge of Covid-19, and the impact on clients and the sector, and accelerate the change set out in our strategic aims and priorities to achieve a more adaptive and agile business model, with full remote working capability and a high resilience.
- Deliver a high-quality service which is approachable, people-centric, prompt, and proportionate, and which delivers fair resolutions.
- Innovate by working as a performance-focused, change-confident and resilient team, delivering our work in new and efficient ways.
- Prevent the common causes of complaints through analysis, shared learning and improvement work.
- Influence the debate on reform, and lead the change as soon as final proposals are in place.
We have four internal priorities which will influence all our work and will ensure delivery of our aims:
