At leafie, we view complaints as an opportunity to learn and improve the quality of our journalism and the contents of our publication for the future, as well as a chance to put things right for the person (or organisation) that has made the complaint.
We can look into complaints about items we have published which are in our control. We adhere to the Standards Code adopted by IMPRESS and can only deal with complaints which relate to an alleged breach of the standards set out in this code.
We can only deal with your complaint if you are:
- personally and directly affected by an alleged breach of the Code
- a representative group affected by an alleged breach of the Code, where there is a public interest in your complaint
- a third party seeking to ensure the accuracy of published information
While we are regulated by IMPRESS, initial complaints must be made to us. To register a complaint or request a correction, please contact us using the form below. We will endeavour to respond no later than 21 days later.
Alternatively, you can write to us:
29 Old Gloucester Street
We will acknowledge your complaint by e-mail or in writing within 7 calendar days and will normally respond to your complaint with a final decision letter within 21 calendar days. If we uphold your complaint, we will tell you the remedial actions we have taken.
If you are not satisfied with the final response to your complaint, or if you do not hear from us within 21 calendar days of submitting your complaint, then you can refer your complaint to our Independent regulator IMPRESS at the following address:
