Housing Ombudsman workshop: Drafting effective complaint responses and appropriate remedies

Virtual workshop

Following the publication of the Ombudsman’s Complaint Handling Code, this interactive virtual session will look at what should be included in an effective written response to a complaint and how landlords should approach putting things right.

It will specifically focus on Part B (5) of the Code and discuss factors to be taken into account in proposing an appropriate and effective remedy to resolve a dispute.

Drawing on best practice in dispute resolution based on the Ombudsman’s casework knowledge and experience, landlords will come away feeling better equipped to deal with complaints. There will also be the opportunity to network with other landlords.

The workshop will be delivered by the Ombudsman's own expert trainers.

Confirmed speakers:

  • John Goodwin, Systemic Adjudicator, Housing Ombudsman Service
  • Dave Simmons, Sector Development Lead, Housing Ombudsman Service.


"It was really well structured and gives a sense of working in partnership with regulators. Keep doing what you are doing - thank you. HQN are always very professional in their delivery of training, workshop and networking." 

"I thought Dave and John brought a really positive, enthusiastic and reassuring energy to the session. So often online workshops can feel a bit lifeless, but this is the most engaging one I've attended so far." 

"I enjoyed this session and have attended multiple times, both in person and virtually."

"Dave and John are very knowledgeable and always willing to answer questions and give their own opinions. I think the group parts are valuable and enjoyable, as you get to speak to others from the industry."

"I think they add more detail on the HOS process, decision making and outcomes."

"Very informative and as always very well presented. Great delegate participation and everyone keen to get this right."
