This procedure encompasses matters related to the conduct of individuals carrying out duties and responsibilities in any Miss Caribbean UK event and the application of Miss Caribbean UK’s policies, impacting delegates, volunteers, staff, and sponsors. It excludes matters subject to separate procedures addressing complainants' concerns.

Our Commitment:

We are dedicated to delivering high-quality services to everyone associated with Miss Caribbean UK Limited. If issues arise, we encourage you to inform us, enabling continuous improvement. Complaints will be considered within eight weeks of receipt, with an initial focus on informal resolution.


General Principles:

  • Anonymous complaints may not be investigated unless under exceptional circumstances.

  • Complaints that become vexatious or abusive may be terminated with no further recourse.

  • Complaints should be raised with the Director of the specific event promptly. Matters raised over three months after the event are unlikely to be considered.

  • Investigation of any complaint typically begins within a week of receipt.

  • The complexity and volume of some complaints may affect processing times.

  5. Review Hearing:

    • Within a week of receiving materials, the Review Panel will review submissions from the complainant.

    • The complainant may be accompanied by a suitable person.

    • Persons complained about may attend with suitable representation.

  6. Decision:
