Coventry Citizens Advice Bureau
Little Park Street
From 9.30am* Monday to Friday
National Consumer Week
This week is National Consumer Week.
Citizens Advice are working closely with Trading Standards to promote the protection of vulnerable consumers from rogue doorstep traders.
Despite vast under-reporting of doorstep crime, latest research shows there could be as many as 170,000 incidents of doorstep crime each year. Doorstep criminals exploit vulnerable citizens by convincing them to pay for shoddy or incomplete repair work, charging extortionate fees for their services, or threatening residents who do not comply
The 'Good neighbours stop rogue traders' campaign focuses on preventing doorstep crime by encouraging neighbours, family, friends and carers to look out for those most at risk in their communities.
If you are interested in finding out more about this campaign, or want to get actively involved, go to Adviceguide at:
