This is your space to discuss all things related to Which?, including our governance. Together with other Which? Members and our Ordinary Members you can discuss our past, present and help shape our future.
For those of you new to Which? Conversation, welcome! Our community website is your space to discover and debate the burning consumer issues of the day.
While our community enjoys getting down to the nitty-gritty details of big issues like stopping nuisance callers or exposing the wider risks of product safety, we also want our Ordinary Members* to be able to connect with one another and have their say on the governance of Which?. If you want to have a say in how we’re run and help to shape the future of Which?, you can become an ‘Ordinary’ (or voting) Member.
We’ve just celebrated the 60th anniversary of Which?. The views and support of our members have been key to helping us get this far, and so your views will also help shape our next 60 years.
So we’ve created this space for you. Here you can connect with other members and discuss all things Which?, including governance, feedback about our organisation and issues you want our Council to consider.
To keep things running smoothly, we have a few simple rules specific to this area for you to follow:
- Keep comments relevant to this area – sharing your thoughts about Which? and its governance
- If you have something off-topic to share, please share it in ‘The Lobby‘ or find a relevant conversation to join. If you’d like to talk about the closure of Which.net, we’ve created a dedicated discussion area for you here.
- Before you share a resolution, please check to see if another member has shared something similar and add your support to it by replying
- Please be polite and speak to others as you’d like to be spoken to, whether that’s with other members or Which? staff.
- Keep personal contact details private (eg email, phone number or address) – whether they’re yours or someone else’s.
- We’re here to listen to your feedback about Which?, and we’ll try to answer any questions as soon as we can, but please be patient with us and mindful that we don’t work weekends
These guidelines are here to keep things running smoothly, so if you spot a comment that breaks these rules, please bring them to our attention by using the ‘Report’ button.

*If you aren’t already an Ordinary Member and are interested in finding out more, you can read about how to become an Ordinary Member right here.
Becoming an Ordinary Member means you can:
- Vote in the annual Council election – the Council is the ultimate governing body of our charity, the Consumers’ Association, and oversees our whole organisation. We’ll send you the ballot booklets every November.
- Come along to our AGM – meet our chairman, chief executive and team. You can find out more about what we’re doing and why, hear from our teams and ask your questions, and see how Which? works from the inside.
- Stand for election to the Council – you can nominate yourself and ask for support from other ordinary members.
- Nominate other ordinary members who want to stand for Council – to help make sure we have the right people governing.
- Get our annual and interim reports and accounts – we’ll keep you up to date with all that’s going on, so you’re always in the loop.
