Consumer Advice Services

The Trading Standards Service in Wales has consumer advice services which offer consumer education to individuals, groups, organisations etc to bring attention to consumer rights and responsibilities in purchasing goods and services.

They will respond positively to requests for talks, presentations. They will stage special events to deal with specific areas of interest. For example, the recent rise in reported crime involving doorstep callers, and rogue traders, has generated more requests for information and advice on how to prevent consumers from becoming victims of this type of crime. Many authorities are now responding to requests and also targeting special services at vulnerable people.
