We hope that you are pleased with the service and experience that you have received from us and our associated Clubs and Leagues, and that you'll never have reason to complain - but if there is something you are not happy with, initially you need to tell the relevant Club or League about it straight away, following their Complaints Procedure, so that they can try to put matters right.

If you are still not happy with how this has been resolved, please escalate this to us at Lancashire FA, so we can try to put matters right for you.


How we handle complaints
