LGO Watch, Public Service Ombudsman Watchers and the Ombudsman Watchers Resource centre web-sites are maintained by a very small group of dedicated Ombudsman Watchers. We started these web-sites to expose Public Service and Local Government Ombudsmen to public scrutiny and motivate others to campaign for the radical reform or abolishment of Public Services and Local Government Ombudsmen.
We intend to post any material that will help achieve our aim, so it you have a story about an Ombudsmen, an article that you have written, any evidence that you would like others to be aware of, any news, jokes or cartoons about Ombudsmen that illustrate the reality of the situation then please send them to us. We would appreciate the opportunity to add the information to our site even if it's already posted or hosted on another site. All we ask is that they are related to Public Service Ombudsmen in some way.
All information published on this website (excluding a few third party articles) is provided for research purposes and as a result is free to copy or use, although a link to this site or credit would be appreciated. In addition we do not have the resources to validate all the information that is submitted by third parties as a result we expect the reader/user of the information to carry out the necessary checks before relying on any information on this website. Before contemplating any legal action we recommended that you contact a Solicitor for legal advice. The information contained within these pages should not be used as a single reference source for any such action.
These pages are held and transmitted electronically and are thus open to file corruption. In addition accidental errors can be introduced when information is added (typos etc.). If anyone is aware of any error or mistake contained within these pages please contact us with details so it can be immediately rectified.
We accept no responsibility for the misuse of information hosted on this website. Links to this website are outside our control as are the views expressed by others. They remain the responsibility of the websites/blogs/individual/s concerned, Links to other websites/blogs/resources are provided for research and information only, we accept no responsibility for the content of these sites. Use of this web site constitutes your understanding and acceptance of the provisions and agreement that we cannot be held liable in any circumstances.
We are opposed to discrimination in all its forms, including, but not limited to, discrimination with regard to race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, socioeconomic status, marital status, language, disability, or immigration status.
We are not Public Services or Local Government Ombudsmen - how people can make that mistake is beyond us, but very occasionally they do. If you are intending to complain to an Ombudsman please use one of the links below.
