Complaints in numbers

Since the Ombudsman for Children’s Office first opened in 2004, the number of complaints we receive has increased each year.

Most of our complaints come from parents complaining on behalf of their children, but guardians, social workers, doctors and other professionals, as well as children themselves also contact us.

Education is always one of the most complained about categories which isn’t surprising considering the amount of time young people spend at school and due to the need to provide education to all children. We also receive complaints about health, housing, child protection and many other issues. Find out more about our complaints here.
