Ombudsman Services is here to help

We know complaining isn’t easy, but we want to make sure it’s fair. We are approved to provide alternative dispute resolution across a range of sectors, so we might be able to help you.

We advise you to start your journey at our website because it’s been designed to deliver the most efficient, convenient and accessible experience possible. You can log and complete your complaint any time day or night. It provides services and support long after our call centre has closed.
