Force government action on Whirlpool fire-risk dryers
Now that Whirlpool has finally changed its safety advice to tell customers to unplug the machines, Which? believes a full recall is now necessary. But this has also highlighted serious flaws in the product safety system. If a product could cause a risk to life or serious injury, you should expect this to be promptly dealt with by the manufacturers. We don’t believe this is happening with Whirlpool. The government needs to step in for safety's sake - please pledge your support.
Demand a better rail service
Overcrowding, delays, carriages in poor condition - many rail services don't even provide the basics. The consumer champion Which? is saying enough is enough. We deserve trains that run for passengers, not just the rail industry. And we need you to secure change. Sign our petition to demand better rail services. Overcrowding, delays, short trains, carriages in poor condition - many rail services don't even provide the basics. Passengers are also paying more but still arriving at their destination late and frustrated. This is completely unacceptable. We know that train problems cost people more than just pounds. It's costing them time with their family and stopping them from getting to work. Enough is enough. That’s why the consumer champion Which? has launched a new campaign calling on train companies, the regulator and the government to deliver a rail service that truly puts passengers first. We deserve trains that run for passengers, not just the rail industry. And we need you to secure change. Sign our petition to demand better rail services.
Sign to demand fair energy prices
Around 16 million UK households are paying over the odds for their energy bills. No one should have to choose between heating and eating this season, and we need your help. Sign our petition to demand energy companies help those struggling to pay their energy bills this winter. Around 16 million UK households are paying over the odds for their energy bills. They are being stuck on standard variable tariffs (SVTs) – usually the most expensive deals. After years of inflation-busting price hikes, dire customer service and falling levels of trust, people expect to see big improvements from their energy suppliers. It’s the industry’s last chance saloon. Sign our petition to demand energy companies help those struggling to pay their energy bills this winter. We’re asking all energy companies to: – Publish a plan by the end of January on how they will engage with SVT customers to help them move; and – Give us details of the immediate activity being taken this winter with these customers. This plan should be CEO-endorsed and include details on timescales for the activity, setting out information about the trial and test methods, as well as how they will evaluate successes and learnings.

Take a stand against scams
Fraud is now at record levels, with more than five million scams costing Brits a mind-boggling £9bn each year. While there are sensible steps we can all take to protect ourselves, an unfair burden has been placed on the public. Even the savviest of people can be scammed. It’s important that the government and businesses take their responsibilities seriously and step up to safeguard us all. Which? found that the majority of people (85%) think companies must take an equal or greater responsibility in protecting us from online scams. This and the results of our own investigations are why we're calling on the government to investigate how seriously companies take their responsibility to protect customers from scams.
