Reducing the risk of rogue traders across Knowsley – Wayne Goulding

W G Decorators is a local Knowsley business and a trusted trader member of the TrAder Approved Scheme – TASK. This small family business is headed up by Wayne Goulding, a local man who has been trading for over 30 years. Wayne’s business was originally called Euro Decorators, but experience taught him that this gave the impression it was an international company, and Wayne felt strongly that he wanted to be recognised as a local business that cares about local people.

“I joined TASK in the early days, because I thought it was important to help vulnerable and older people by offering jobs at the right price” says Wayne, who is committed to reducing the risk of rogue traders in the area, to protect the most vulnerable Knowsley residents. When Wayne heard about TASK when it was set up back in 2004, he was keen to join to strengthen his commitment to this cause after hearing numerous horror stories from customers about being take advantage of.

Wayne recognises the extensive benefits to being a member of TASK, and feels the membership fee is worth every penny. He gets more job satisfaction being able to connect with older people in the community and encourages his customers to speak to their family and friends about the jobs he will do to ensure they feel happy and safe to use him as their trader.

“One of the best things about TASK is having a cup of tea and a chat with customers who are isolated, because I might have been the only person they’ve seen that week”

After many years as a TASK trader, Wayne is aways happy to recommend other TASK traders, as well as encouraging other local traders to join. As well as the benefits to his business, he appreciates the additional support from the team at Better Lives and keeps in touch with the team regularly to provide feedback.
