If we're unable to resolve your complaint

We always try our very best to resolve any issues, however if we’re unable to do this to your satisfaction, you can take your complaint to an independent body that can help. These bodies are different organisations depending on whether your business is based in England or Scotland.

For customers in England

If your business is based in England and we’ve not been able to resolve your issue to your satisfaction, you can get in touch with the Consumer Council for Water (CCW). CCW is an independent body that will work on your behalf to try and resolve your complaint. You can visit the CCW website for more information on what to do next.

Your final escalation point would be to take your complaint to ADR Group within 6 months of the date of your closure letter from CCW. ADR Group mediates disputes between the customer and water and wastewater retailers which have reached a state of deadlock.

For customers in Scotland

If your business is based in Scotland, and you're not satisfied after we've dealt with your complaint, you can get in touch with the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman (SPSO).

The SPSO is the final stage for complaints about public services in Scotland. Please note the SPSO will not usually look at complaints:

  • where you have not gone all the way through our complaints handling procedure
  • more than 12 months after you became aware of the matter you want to complain about; or
  • that have been or are being considered in court
If you want to contact the SPSO directly, please use the following contact information. Note that this not a contact address for Wave.
  • In person: SPSO, Bridgeside House, 99 McDonald Road, Edinburgh, EH7 4NS
  • By post: Freepost SPSO (you don’t need to use a stamp)
  • Freephone: 0800 377 7330
  • Online: spso.org.uk/contact-us
