Use this directory to find reputable contractors near you.

We launched our Business and Trades Directory to protect older people from rogue traders by connecting them with local reputable businesses that have been vetted by us.

What does the service offer?

  • 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.
  • Age UK Northamptonshire 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.
  • We charge the traders an annual subscription fee which covers the administration costs of this scheme.
  • We also ask that Businesses and Traders in our directory let us 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.

How much does it cost?

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