Focus Reports and Good Practice Guides

Focus reports highlight common or systemic issues we see, brought to life with case studies from our complaints. They share learning from complaints to help councils and care providers make improvements, contribute to public policy debates and give elected members tools to scrutinise local services.

Focus reports are web-based publications. If you need any of the documents in a more accessible format, please email
