The Age UK Birmingham Business Directory is a new service, designed with older people in mind, as a way to offer peace of mind to them, their carers and family members, but the service can be accessed by anyone who needs to be connected with a local reputable trader or business.

The service can be accessed online or by using the Freephone number 0800 044 3848.

Our checking process

In order to ensure that the business directory only lists reputable traders and businesses we thoroughly check all of our member companies before they join the scheme.

This checking process consists of:

  • A check of any professional or trade qualifications or memberships
  • A check that the trader or business has appropriate and adequate insurance.
  • Writing to previous customers and suppliers to check they have a history of reliable trading.
  • Signing our Local Age UK Business Directory customer charter which sets out a code of conduct that each trader agrees to abide by.
  • A declaration authorising trading standards to talk with the local Age UK about the company should the need arise.

Using the Directory

  • To start your search click on the ‘Home’ tab to return to the home page. 
  • To search for a type of trader or business type a keyword or a type of trade into the search box which says ‘Enter the Trade’ you are looking for. When you start typing, a list of possible trades will appear below, click on the appropriate one.
  • Once you have done this, type your full postcode into the search box, which says ‘Your postcode’ and then hit the search button.

    This will generate a list of relevant traders and business in distance order, stating how many miles they are away from the postcode you entered. To read more about the trader or business click on the ‘view details button’.

If you have any problems using the directory please call the Freephone number 0800 044 3848, and our local staff will happily search the directory on your behalf or answer any questions you have.

Leave a Review

It is important to us that we are able to monitor how users of the business directory rate their experience of the company or trader they have used, because of this we encourage users to leave a review using the ‘Leave a review’ tab and filling out the online feedback form.
