Age UK Richmond are working in partnership with the Richmond Safer Neighbourhood Team and Trading Standards Richmond, to help keep you safer from doorstep crime. 

We want to give you the choice and the confidence to say 'no' to cold calling traders and have created a 'doorstep safety pack'. This includes free internal and external door stickers to deter rogue traders and act as a reminder that, if you are unsure, don't open the door.

For a limited period, our Handyperson Service can fit devices which will help increase your security from rogue callers.  We can supply and fit FREE OF CHARGE:

- Security Chains

- Letter-box Visor

- Door mirrors

- Spyholes (wood doors only)

If you or someone you know are interested in having any of these fitted free of charge, please call our Handyperson Service on 020 8876 0620.

Alternatively you can email us at

For information and advice on a range of topics, including reputable tradesmen, call the Age UK Richmond first Contact Helpline on 020 8878 3073 (open Monday to Friday 10.00am - 4.00pm)

We are extremely grateful to Richmond Parish Lands Charity (RPLC) who are funding this much needed campaign.
