In keeping with ombudsman principles, we are:
The Miss April Ombudsman reports to the Miss April’s Deputy Director with access to the Director. This reporting line ensures the Ombudsman’s independence within the Miss April. It also allows us to act as an early warning system and serve as a catalyst for change.
We do not advocate for one side, but for a fair process.
We have put safeguards in place to preserve confidentiality. We will not share your identifying information outside the Ombudsman’s Office unless you tell us we can. We also may have to share it if there is a threat of imminent risk of serious harm, you have raised an issue of government fraud, waste, or abuse, or if required by law.
