Can’t see the sector you need?

As we’re the Ombudsman for Energy and Communications, we won’t be able to help with queries for other issues.

If you're looking to escalate your complaint in other areas such as travel, retail, insurance, employment, financial products or banking, then there are other organisations or ombudsman schemes that may be able to help.
