What is a service charter

A Service Charter is the means through which organizations providing public services promote their projects, inform about resources, available operations, methods of access and intervention. It relates to two rules, the Directive of President Ciampi dated 27/01/1994, “Principles Concerning Public Services Provision”, and Law 8, dated November 2000, no. 328, “Framework Law for the Implementation of an Integrated System for Social Intervention and Social Services”. This Charter enables users to control the public services delivered, even in terms of quality.

The Service Charter represents our commitment to define and protect the rights of those who benefit from it, according to some principles:
safety, continuity and regularity of the services provided;
prompt responses;
fair and regular management.
In order to realize these principles, it will be necessary to take the measures that:
define the quality standards of the services provided and assess their effectiveness;
simplify bureaucracy as much as possible;
handle complaints.
Our Charter of Services will be updated annually.
Through it you will learn:
our history;
the principles followed in providing the services;
the services delivered by the organization in its areas of action;
quality standards;
measures for the protection and the involvement of the users.

Quality standards are defined annually for each service, in terms of efficiency and effectiveness, and verified. A process control, integrated to an operative system, monitors the delivered quality and makes the necessary corrections (which are also verified) in terms of quality and quantity, in a very short time. Every year the cooperative gives the users a satisfaction questionnaire to complete, and organizes meetings with the users and/or their families. What comes out of such investigations is made known in order to detect the degree of satisfaction and quality perceived by users.

Information, messages, requests or complaints can be communicated by telephone. The cooperative will verify that the services provided are in line with what is stated in the Service Charter, and will manage complaints easily and rapidly, explaining the rules that apply to each case and the procedures followed in service provision. Users and their families may make observations, proposals or complaints concerning actions, behaviors, situations that have hindered or limited, directly or indirectly, their access to services, in the following ways:
-writing a letter on unstamped paper, addressed to the staff in charge and sent or taken to the administrative office in Via Trieste 30, 81022, Casagiove (Ce);
-by telephone or fax;
-filling out and sending the form attached to the Service Charter.
Observations and complaints must be made, according to regulation, within 15 days of what users perceived as a violation of their rights.
The Cooperative ‘L’isola di Arturo’ will immediately respond, according to D.L. 196/2003, to the reports that can be easily defined. For the most controversial complaints, the cooperative will provide a written response within 30 days. If this is an interim or provisional response, it will also point out the timetable for any planned corrective actions.
