Use the proper ways Congress has in place to give feedback. Using these channels means that they are documented and must go through a process of investigation. You can give feedback:

  • Using the online form at
  • By filling in a form and put it in the secure feedback box at any Congress sites (and we can help you if you need)
  • By calling our Quality team on (08) 7928 8131 or 0490 679 012
  • In person. You can ask for a manager and tell them what’s gone on.

Sharing what’s happened publicly, for example on social media, is not the right way to provide feedback. If you believe you have been treated unfairly or your feedback hasn’t been taken seriously or dealt with, you should call teh Quality team on 

This means telling your story with as much detail as you can, including:

  • Who was involved. It is very important that you provide your details so we can investigate properly and let you know about the outcome. If you don’t provide your name and how to contact you, we may not be able to do anything with your feedback.  

You should also tell us: 

  • What happened
  • Where this took place
  • When it took place, and
  • Why you are giving feedback
  • How things could be improved
