Putting a stop to doorstep traders and cold callers
Free door stickers are available to residents to stop doorstep traders and cold callers.
The Stop Cold Calling Initiative aims to tackle the rising number of doorstep traders who prey on vulnerable residents and carry out shoddy work, often at over-inflated prices. The initiative, led by Surrey Trading Standards, aims to reduce the fear of crime and prevent residents from feeling pressurised on their doorsteps to make decisions that they may not otherwise make.
Residents can pick up a Surrey Trading Standards sticker pack from:
- Waverley Borough Council office in Godalming
- Waverley Borough Council office in Farnham
- libraries and other public buildings.
To find out more about the scheme contact visit Surrey Trading Standards Stop Cold Callers.
