Welcome to Ombudsman Services

We know complaining isn't easy, so we make sure it's fair.

What is Ombudsman Services?

We’re approved to review complaints across a range of sectors including energy and communications. We can also handle matters regarding non-regulated sectors such as copyright home improvement and parking on private land appeals (POPLA).

We’re not a watchdog or a regulator so we're not here to punish anyone. Our aim is to put consumers back into the position they were in before the issue occurred. We review the evidence from both parties to find a fair resolution.
