Trading Standards Community Talks, Presentations and Training

We are regularly asked by a variety of local groups and organisations to deliver presentations and talks on our work or about specific issues that we cover; including scams, doorstep crime and cold calling or various other relevant consumer protection topics.

We are more than happy to accommodate these requests; however in order to cover our travelling and attendance costs, we do ask for a small fee. The applicable fees are given below.

We are also able to offer more technical or in-depth presentations relating to legal compliance for specific trade sectors or subjects (see list below). Due to the preparation time involved in these, the costs would be based on our standard officer rate.
