Western Eye Complaints

The Editor of WesternEye needs to know what readers think so all views and feedback are valued and encouraged.

Stage 1

If you think WesternEye has made a mistake, done something wrong or something to upset you then please simply fill in this form below.

We're confident that the majority of complaints will be resolved informally between the Editor and yourself / the complainant.

Stage 2

If you are not satisfied with the response of the Editor at Stage 1, just let the Editor know that you are not happy and would like the complaint to go to Stage 2. The Editor will then automatically refer your complaint to the Editorial Board who oversee Western Eye.

The Board is made up of the General Manager of the Students’ Union, Vice-President Societies & Communications, Societies & Communications Officer, a UWE expert in Journalism or Media Law, and an independently elected student. They will consider your complaint and the Editor's response and decide what the outcome should be. You will be asked to provide any additional information that you think may affect the Board's decision at this stage, and you may be asked to attend a meeting with the Board so you can explain further.
