The Judicial Appointments and Conduct Ombudsman’s office is not fully staffed and mostly working remotely. The impact of this is that we may take longer to consider complaints and deal with correspondence. The best way to contact the office during this period is by email at headofoffice@judicialombudsman.gov.uk.

If you need to speak to a member of the team urgently, please send us an email requesting a call back – please include your contact number and a brief explanation of your query. A member of the team will contact you as soon as possible. Please note we cannot help you with a Court or Tribunal case, investigate a judicial office holder or say whether their actions amount to misconduct.

We will process personal data in accordance with our Privacy Notice.
