Our Vetting Process

Safe Local Services VettingConsumers generally do not ask to see verification of professionals, nor do they ask to see their insurance or relevant qualifications. By ensuring that all members on our register undergo a vetting process, abide by a Service Charter, and are monitored on an on-going basis, this should reassure you that the members on Safe Local Services are reputable professionals.

As spaces on our register are limited, this allows us to carefully select members, all of whom are open and transparent, and confident in being vetted and monitored; this deters any service providers who know that their work is substandard or their service is poor.

The following checks have been carried out on all our members:

  • Interviewed in person
  • Criminal record checked (if entering a domestic property)
  • Photo and address identification (e.g., drivers licence)
  • Proof of membership to any Professional Body
  • Proof of credentials in line with their service
  • Proof of statutory qualifications required by law 
  • Appropriate insurances i.e., Professional Indemnity, Public and Employers Insurance
  • Certificate of Incorporation for Limited Companies and credit checked
  • UTR (Unique Tax Reference) for sole practioners
  • Certificate of VAT registration document (if applicable)
  • References taken from a minimum of three previous customers
  • Sign and agree to abide by the standards set out in our Service Charter
