Lewisham Council - Responsible retailers

Responsible retailers

The Responsible Retailer campaign is an on-going joint effort between us, Lewisham Police and businesses to act responsibly when selling certain types of products to the public.

Some of the products on sale (for example tobacco or alcohol) may have legal age restrictions. Other products or fundraising activities may have been found to have negative and other detrimental effects on the local community which can lead to a rise in antisocial behaviour or be used to fund serious crime.

Commit to being responsible

When businesses agree to sign a Responsible Retailer Agreement, it is a voluntary but binding agreement that they will work with us (Trading Standards and the Neighbourhood Community Safety Service) and Lewisham Police to make the borough a better place to live and work. Each business to sign up to the RRA receives a window sticker to display on their shopfront.

If you own a business and would like to sign up to the Responsible Retailer Agreement then get in contact with the Neighbourhood Community Safety Service.
