Safe Local Trades - Benefits of Membership


Your web profile will be indexed by Google therefore giving you a better presence on internet search engines. Research shows that consumers tend to carry out online research of a business prior to agreeing to allow them to undertake work. Typing 'Reviews for [business name]' into Google will ensure that your entry on Safe Local Trades will appear as the top line. Consumers will then not only see that you are associated with a trusted brand but will also be able to read your genuine customer reviews.


Published genuine feedback from customers is extremely powerful for the success of your business. Build your ratings and watch your business grow. We provide you with unlimited feedback packs that can be handed to your customers, or they can leave their feedback online. We do not accept anonymous feedback and every review is monitored; if negative feedback is submitted, we give you the chance to rectify the situation prior to publishing it.


Safe Local Trades is 'not' another trade directory; we only have limited spaces for each trade - our success is based on 'quality' of our members rather than 'quantity'. 

Logo of Accreditation

Since 2008, Safe Local Trades has built up immense credibility with over 17,000 satisfied customers leaving reviews on members records. In 2007, we had a vision to build a local trusted brand name that consumers in the PE postcode district would recognise and use and we have successfully accomplished this. A copy of the logo will be supplied to you to use on your business cards, corporate stationery, website, adverts etc., together with vinyl vehicle stickers. Consumers recognise this as the local symbol of trust and quality.

Web Profile Page

Your web profile page on will list your contact details, the range of services you offer, your credentials, genuine reviews, a full gallery area to upload your photos or images - you can even include a video clip as a way of introducing yourself to potential customers. If you currently have your own website, you can include an authority link to Safe Local Trades, displaying the logo and a URL to your profile page.

Customer Contact Preferences

Customers have the option to make contact with you in a number of different ways; via telephone, our free text service or via email. They can send your details to their phone, email your details to themselves (or someone else) or print off your full web profile page. They can also save your details as a Favourite in their customer login area.


We carry out extensive advertising on your behalf (see below). We also offer the option of being part of our magazine feature pages therefore enhancing your profile and allowing you to target specific areas.

Member Monthly Meetings

Access to free 'members only' monthly meetings where you can meet other like-minded traders and service providers (currently on hold due to Covid regulations).

Our Partnerships

Unlike any other similar scheme, as well as our work with the trades, much effort is placed on safeguarding the more vulnerable people in our communities by working personally and directly with other caring and concerned parties in the 'local' community such as Peterborough and Cambridgeshire Neighbourhood Watch, Age UK, Cambs Police Crime Prevention, The Bobby Scheme, Disability Peterborough, Care Network, CAPASP (Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Against Scams Partnership) and many more.

What our Members say:

"Since becoming a member of Safe Local Trades, my business has continually reaped the benefits of membership. In addition to the new clients I have acquired as a direct result, my level of repeat custom has increased and I would solely survive on just working for Safe Local Trades customers, if I could. Becoming a member has been the best thing I have done since branching out on my own. Thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into both member and customer services.
