The Ombudsman for Children’s annual report will today publish an annual report showing a 34 per cent increase in cases.

THE ANNUAL REPORT of the Ombudsman for Children will today confirm that the number of complaints made to her office has increased by a third in the last twelve months.

The report, being published this morning, will show that over 1,200 complains were lodged with Emily Logan’s office last year, up by 34 per cent on 2009.

RTÉ News reports that three-quarters of the complains were lodged by parents on behalf of their children, with healthcare and education making up the bulk of the complaints.
