About us

We currently have around 450 employees based at our two sites in Manchester and London, with ambitious plans to grow our service, and our staff numbers, to deliver our new Corporate Strategy. Our vision is to be an exemplary public services ombudsman by providing an independent, impartial and fair complaints resolution service, while using our casework to help raise standards and improve public services.

We look into complaints where someone believes there has been injustice or hardship because an organisation has not acted properly or has given a poor service and not put things right. If we decide that the organisation has got things wrong, we may make recommendations for it to put them right. This can include explanations, apologies and recommendations for the service to learn and improve.

Our work is central to helping public services recover from the impact of COVID-19.

Our values of independence, fairness, transparency and excellence resonate through everything that we do.
