Age UK London Business Directory launch will be held at St George's Shopping Centre

A charity for the elderly is setting up a new business directory linking older residents with trusted traders.

The Age UK London Business Directory aims to help reduce the risk of people being exploited by ‘cowboy’ traders by doing thorough checks and obtaining customer references.

The service will be launched at an event held at St George’s Shopping Centre between 9am and 2pm on Tuesday April 23, with staff and volunteers on hand to chat about the directory and the services.

Visit www.aubdlondon.co.uk to use the directory or call 0800 334 5056.

Companies wanting to be added to the service should call Jo Hardcastle on 020 7091 2591 or email businessdirectory@ageuklondon.org.uk

It is a marvellous idea and it will protect the vulnerable and the rest of us from cowboy traders. Hopefully it will lessen the work load for Brent and HarrowTrading Standards department as well.

Can a Harrow Times reporter tell us we can get hold of the directory? Will it be available at librarys or on the Age Uk website for download?
