Local Government & Social Care Ombudsman
The Local Government & Social Care Ombudsman is a body that looks at individual complaints about councils, all adult social care providers and some organisations that provide local public services.
During coronavirus, all of the Ombudsman’s casework that requires action by a local authority or care provide is suspended, and new complaints are not being taken at the moment.
A helpline 0300 061 0614 is being trialled between 10am to 12pm to answer general enquiries about the complaints process only.
