General complaints about DSS programs or DSS funded service providers are dealt with under the DSS Complaints Management process. However, if your complaint relates to a program or service funded by another agency or department, the table below may assist you in getting to the right area to submit your complaint.  It is best to lodge your complaint with these areas directly in the first instance, as DSS may not be able to help you.
