Ombudsman’s 2018–19 Annual Report

31 Oct 2019

The NSW Ombudsman, Mr Michael Barnes, today tabled the Annual Report 2018–19 in Parliament.

The report details the work done across the broad range of areas within the Ombudsman’s jurisdiction. The Ombudsman oversights NSW public sector agencies and private sector agencies that care for children or provide community services.

Over the past year, we provided assistance and advice to over 40,600 people and agencies who contacted the office for help.

The annual report highlights the many ways that the Ombudsman adds value, including case studies relating examples of how we deal with individual requests for assistance.
