40th Anniversary

2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the office of the Commonwealth Ombudsman.

This year we acknowledge the changes of the past and look forward to the potential of the future.

We consider and investigate complaints from people who believe they have been treated unfairly or unreasonably by an Australian Government department or agency, including Australia Post, Centrelink, Child Support Agency, and Department of Immigration and Citizenship. The Commonwealth Ombudsman is also the ACT Ombudsman.
