Report of Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman

The Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman has issued a report following its investigation of a complaint about Hampshire County Council.

The complaint was about Education & Children's Services. The Ombudsman found that there had been fault on the part of the Council, and this had caused injustice to the complainant.

Hampshire County Council has agreed to take action which the Ombudsman regards as providing a satisfactory remedy for the complaint.

The Council must now consider the report and tell the Ombudsman within three months (or such longer period as the Ombudsman may agree) what it proposes to do.

Copies of the report will be available on request from for three weeks starting on 12 August 2022. Anyone is entitled to make a request and copies will be supplied free of charge.
