Become a Safe Local Trades Member

Through the television, press and other media, the term 'rogue trader' and 'cowboy' have become familiar terms, and consumers are now more wary about who they allow into their homes to carry out repairs, maintenance and improvements. They need reassurance of trust and that is why they use Safe Local Trades members.

Award-winning is a Peterborough-based community safety service that protects consumers from ‘cowboys’ and ‘rogue traders’ by only promoting reputable traders across the PE Postcode district and surrounding boundaries. We are recognised as a tried and trusted local service that has been running successfully since 2008 and, since then, we have put thousands of people in touch with our reputable members. We are supported by a wealth of organisations including local authorities, charities, NHS and neighbourhood watch groups, and our register is used exclusively by Age UK Cambridgeshire & Peterborough. is not another trade directory or a typical advertising platform; it is an exclusive register (limited spaces) of local reputable vetted trade professionals, who are committed to high quality and good customer care. Being a member adds value to your business, helps prove your credibility and gets you more work as a result.

Keeping it Local is a local service that welcomes members who live within the PE Postcode district and surrounding boundaries. As this is a vast district (see map), it has been divided into 4 postcode sectors, PE Central, PE South, PE Northwest, PE Northeast.

We offer exclusivity for your trade with a threshold of no more than 6 members (who provide the same service) within each of the sectors; this may be less, depending on the category. Keeping it local, with minimum members, allows us to keep our service personal to both customers and members.

When a search is carried out, a total of six members records will be displayed - if we do not have six members reserved into one of the postcode sectors, it will pull in members from other areas therefore please be aware that because you see six, this does not necessarily mean that the spaces are filled.
