The Ombudsman helps the community in its dealings with government agencies.
We handle complaints against government agencies and undertake investigations and inspections. We also encourage good administration by giving feedback and training to agencies. We will initiate our own investigations where we see the need.
Independent and impartial, we focus on fairness for all.
