Selecting a reliable, trustworthy builder or tradesperson can be a risky business at any age and even more so for vulnerable older people.

Our Trusted Traders Scheme has been set up to help vulnerable older people find reputable contractors and to protect older people from "rogue traders".

We do not make a charge for supplying these details but all work carried out by the contractors listed below must be paid for in the normal way.

Please contact a local business from our current list below:

Working to a good standard

Age UK Milton Keynes has taken up references by satisfied customers of the listed businesses and has seen a copy of their relevant current public liability insurance certificate.  The vetted contractors have declared that they have no criminal convictions and they have the relevant trade certificates for the work they undertake.

Age UK Milton Keynes charges the traders an annual subscription fee which covers the administration costs of this scheme.

We have selected traders who are able to work to a good standard at a reasonable cost, whilst being courteous to clients at all times.  Traders are asked to encourage clients to be security conscious by making sure they check identity badges. 

We also ask that our Trusted Traders let Age UK Milton Keynes know if they are worried about a client's safety, general wellbeing or living conditions.  We may be able to help by providing other services or signposting clients on to other local organisations who can help.

We welcome feedback

We would like to hear from clients who have used the services of the traders listed on our website.  Please share your experiences of work carried out, by writing to us or using email.
