Issue and Grievance Policy | External
This policy lays out the principles that guide Reach’s handling of issues and grievances, and the process that an external party should follow so that the matter can be dealt with appropriately by Reach.
The aim of this Policy is to ensure that Reach people feel confident that they can raise any matter that concerns them, know that if they do it will be taken seriously and treated as confidential, and know that no action will be taken against them as a result.
