The Independent Office for Social Care Complaints

Safeguarding the neediest is the responsibility of all agencies who have been mandated to deliver the best care and support available.  At different stages in an adult or child's life, the support given does not always result in the expected outcome for the intended recipient. When things go wrong, agencies need to be held to account to identify the failings, so action can be taken to prevent a reoccurrence. Lessons are only be learnt when the same thing does not happen again.
