Communication and Emergency notifications
Our staff is upskilled to communicate with people with disabilities, taking into account their disability.
Disruption of Services
We endeavour to notify our members as soon as possible in the event of a disruption of service, unexpected or planned. The branch manager(s) would be the point of contact for further information regarding such disruptions, including the cause of disruption and availability of alternative options. A notice informing about the disruption of service will be placed on the premises.
Customer Service Training
Accessibility training will be provided to all our employees to make sure that they understand how to effectively offer service to persons with disability. Such training will be provided during the probation period of each employee. Any update in the accessibility policy will be shared with all employees.
Feedback and complaints
We strongly encourage our members to provide feedback if they wish to. The feedback could be regarding your experience with our accessibility services or a suggestion for improvement.
You may contact the credit union branch manager or write to us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
