Who we are

The Interim Housing Ombudsman is David Connolly.

David was appointed by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. He took up his appointment from 5 June 2017. This is a temporary arrangement until a permanent Housing Ombudsman is appointed in accordance with the Code of Practice published by the Commissioner for Public Appointments.

We are an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government. We employ around 65 people who work at our office in London.

The Ombudsman is advised by an Audit and Risk Assurance Committee on all activities, policies and procedures concerning governance, risk management and internal control.
