Housing Ombudsman Service
The Housing Ombudsman Service considers complaints against member organisations and deals with other housing disputes. All registered social landlords in England are members by law. It will consider any complaints about shortcomings in the way homes are managed, but only after the complainant has completed the internal complaints procedure of the landlord or agent.

The National Housing Federation represents 1,300 independent, not-for-profit housing associations in England and is the voice of affordable housing. Its mission is to support and promote the work that housing associations do and campaign for better housing and neighbourhoods.
The Supporting People programme offers vulnerable people the opportunity to improve their quality of life. It aims to do this by providing a stable environment which enables greater independence.
It delivers high-quality and strategically planned housing-related services which are cost effective and reliable, and complement existing care services. The planning and development of services will be needs led. Supporting People is a working partnership of local government, service users and support agencies.
