The current landscape is fragmented and confusing and this new body would replace the Parliamentary and Health Services Ombudsman, Local Government Ombudsman and the Housing Ombudsman.
Ombudsmen can play a powerful role in acting as a champion of complaints, driving improvements in public services and supporting people to gain redress when things go wrong.
Our campaign continues as we work to ensure more effective handling of complaints in public services and our other campaign aims are achieved.
Our Executive Director, Richard Lloyd, said:
“Thousands of people have told us they faced problems when complaining about public services. Complaints are falling between the gaps in the current system, so we’re pleased the Government has listened to our calls to introduce a single ombudsman. This should make it easier to complain and ensure every complaint counts.”
