It is possible to make a difference. Both government and regulatory policy makers want to hear from consumers; whether it's Bank Charges, Annuities, online shopping or more.

Therefore, for once complaining may make things better, so this new guide runs you through the main open consultations, and how to have your say.

Before you start...

If you're looking to respond to a consultation, it's worth noting these quick tips:

  • Information provided may be published. If you do not want your views to be made public once the consultation has closed, say this on your response.

  • Say if you're an individual or an organisation. Organisations love to hear directly from consumers so say if you are responding as an individual or on behalf of an organisation.

  • Organisations can't help with individual cases. If you send if personal stories it's very unlikely that anyone will be able to investigate on your behalf.

    Organisations are collecting information to make things better for consumers in the future so you will be playing a part in helping others if you respond.

What the * means above

If a link has an * by it, that means it is an affiliated link and therefore it helps MoneySavingExpert stay free to use, as it is tracked to us. If you go through it, it can sometimes result in a payment or benefit to the site. It's worth noting this means the third party used may be named on any credit agreements.

You shouldn’t notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links. We aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the top deal, it is still included in exactly the same way, just with a non-paying link. For more details, read How This Site Is Financed.

Duplicate links of the * links above for the sake of transparency, but this version doesn't help MoneySavingExpert.com:
