Ombudsman for Children's Office (OCO)

The OCO has two main roles:

1) To deal with complaints made by, or for children and young people about actions of public organisations.

2) To promote the rights and welfare of children and young people under 18 years old living in Ireland.

One of the actions outlined in the OCO's Strategic Plan (2016-2018) is to pursue the rights of vulnerable groups of children and young people, including children with mental health issues.
