Trader scheme’s £130 million boost

Members of Derbyshire County Council’s Trusted Trader scheme bring an estimated £130 million into the local economy each year, a study has found.

The figure is the estimated value of consumer transactions in Derbyshire covered by protection from the scheme.

Cllr Ellie Wilcox said: “As well as giving customers peace of mind, Trusted Trader is a way of encouraging people to use local businesses.”
