Gable Trusted Traders has been developed in conjunction with the Belfast homeless charity Shelter NI. The system enables users who require grant based modifications to their homes (primarily elderly and / or people living with disabilities) to manage their project online in a secure environment and to deal with verified, skilled trades people. The scheme is designed to eradicate bad practices in the sector in Northern Ireland and potentially beyond. The scheme also allows reputable trades people to get the exposure they deserve.
Gable Trusted Traders has been developed via funding from the Techies in Residence Scheme as part of the former Building Change Trust and their Social Innovation programme.
“We have worked closely with Zoocreative via the 'Techies in Residence' scheme to develop a digital solution to streamline our existing processes. We are over the moon with our new 'Gable Trusted Traders' platform.”
