Consumer rights/complaints queries and requests for help
Having looked at the blog and searched for relevant pages please email one short paragraph only. Helen is unable to read through masses of emails every day and advise. Helen is not funded to run this site unlike other consumer advice sites. Please respect her time, skills and experience. Anything that needs more than this please see services.
Helen is unable to provide more than this goodwill gesture as to do more as well as unfair to expect her to do more it would also be unfair on paying clients. She will also prioritise people she has not already helped for free.
Please consider the below if you are hoping for free advice thank you.
