What do they do?

The Ombudsman receives complaints about the administrative fairness of public authorities. She can attempt to resolve the matter or she can investigate. The Ombudsman’s Office will usually decline a complaint if the authority has not had an opportunity to respond and resolve the matter.

If you feel a Government Department or Public Authority has not handled your matter fairly, you should make a complaint with that Authority. If you remain unsatisfied or you have not received a response to your complaint in a timely manner, you may make a complaint with the Ombudsman’s Office.
