Appeals and Complaints

Appeals against a Refusal Notice issued in response to a request for information must be made in writing to the University Secretary:


Mr Derrick Dykins

Head of Committee Secretariat

Liverpool Hope University

Hope Park




Appeals will be acknowledged within five working days.  A full response to the appeal will normally be sent directly to the enquirer within a further ten working days.  In the case of a more complex review, in particular when a public interest test is involved, the timescale may be longer but a response will be issued within thirty days.

Complaints in respect of the University’s Publications Scheme should also be addressed to the Head of Committee Secretariat.

If we are unable to resolve your complaint, or if you are dissatisfied with the outcome of your appeal, you can appeal further to the Information Commissioner, the independent body which oversees the Freedom of Information Act, at the address below:
