Information for consumers

Citizens Advice

The Citizens Advice Consumer Service is the first point of contact for all Trading Standards queries in the UK.

Advice can be provided online or by telephone.

The Citizens Advice Consumer Service provides consumer advice and refers complex enquiries, urgent enquiries and those requiring further action to the Cheshire West and Chester Council Regulatory Services department.

If you are outside of the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre

Please note

Advice and assistance can only be offered by Cheshire West and Chester Trading Standards in civil cases if the consumer is vulnerable for example due to their age, learning or language difficulties. Cheshire West and Chester Trading Standards work closely with the Citizens Advice Consumer Service who refer enquiries of vulnerable consumers directly to us for action.
