You can also arrange to meet or talk to an ombudsman outside normal office hours.

The ombudsmen/mediators are not limited to a particular region; ombudsmen/mediators undertake cases according to their experience and specialization but also subject to their caseload and availability. The ombudsman/mediator who works on your case will at all times provide ombudsman and mediation services to the highest standard.
