Services and sources of assistance for children and families

On this page, the Office of the Ombudsman for Children has compiled a list of sources of support and additional information in difficult situations. Some of the organisations offer help in several languages. We recommend that you contact the organisation directly if you need more information on their services.

The Ombudsman for Children does not have the authority to resolve issues related to individual children or families, and the Ombudsman for Children cannot comment on such issues. If you are not satisfied with your decision or treatment, instructions on how to proceed are available here. 

See below for more details on the help available. This list is not exhaustive. If you need guidance or assistance in the use on public services, you may contact the Public Service Info. Also see the answers to our frequently asked questions.
