This guide helps local authorities to understand the founding principles of good administrative practice. It was published in December 2018, having been developed in consultation with the sector, and replaces our previous guidance on this subject.

Our principles are aligned to those used by other UK ombudsmen – in particular the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsmen (PHSO).
