We’ve all heard shocking stories, in the newspapers and on the television, of cowboy traders taking advantage of vulnerable people. This year Age UK London launched a new scheme, to put an end to such horror stories and to protect vulnerable people from being targeted by rogue traders. The Age UK London Business Directory is an online directory of traders, who have been vetted by Age UK staff. The service gives older people, their family and their carers peace of mind, by putting them in touch with trusted traders in their local community.
The initiative was launched in January and is currently available in Hilingdon, Ealing, Harrow, Brent, Bromley and Greenwich and soon to go live in Southwark, Lewisham, Lambeth and Wandsworth. The directory can be accessed online at www.aubdlondon.co.uk, or by calling the Freephone number 0800 334 5056, where a dedicated member of the Age UK London Team searches the directory for you.
The Age UK London team are always looking for reputable, local businesses to join the scheme. You can help the Age UK London Business Directory team by spreading the word to traders and businesses in London. For business enquiries please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0207820677.
