Complaints and protected disclosures


Please note, it is not compulsory to use the Complaint Form, but it is strongly recommended.  Using the Form will help to ensure that the VI receives all the information it needs to consider your complaint properly. If you do not use the Complaint Form, consideration of your complaint will probably be delayed because you will not have given the VI all the necessary information. 

If you are not using the Online Complaint Form, you may send your complaint to the Victorian Inspectorate:

By post

using a hard copy Complaint Form,  sent to the Victorian Inspectorate at:

PO Box 617 Collins Street West
Melbourne Victoria 8007

DX 210172  Melbourne Victoria

By email

with the Complaint Form attached,  to the VI’s email address: 

Complaints not in writing
