No Cold Calling Zones
No Cold Calling Zones help combat the problem of doorstep crime. They can deter unscrupulous cold callers from approaching people living in the zones. More importantly, they can give people the confidence to say "No".
Whilst the zones do not ban cold callers or create exclusion zones, they can be useful in dealing with any unwelcome cold callers.

No nuisance callers, no uninvited traders
You have the right to say no to uninvited traders and nuisance callers. The 'Your home, your right to say no!' campaign aims to give residents across South Wales the confidence to turn away unwanted callers.
You can download a door sticker to tell people you don't accept uninvited traders or nuisance callers. You can also follow the tips to help turn them away.
You can say no - you can ask them to leave
- Check them all and make a call - If you believe the person or persons at your front door is there for a genuine purpose, ask for photographic identification and check the details with the company they are representing.
- Take your time - Don't feel pushed or rushed into agreeing to purchase a service or goods on your doorstep, and please do not pay for work before it is completed. The cancellation period for buying goods on your doorstep is 14 calendar days after the delivery of the goods or commencement of the service, there are exceptions for bespoke products and emergency repairs. If the service starts immediately, you can still cancel within the 14 days cooling-off period but you may not get a full refund. If permission hasn't been given to start work there is no requirement to pay.
- Report it! - By displaying the door sticker provided you are clearly stating that you do not wish to receive uninvited callers, and failure to leave when asked can be an offence. So, if an uninvited trader or nuisance caller persists; if you believe you have been scammed or; a doorstep caller has acted suspiciously, please contact the Police by dialling 101 to report your concerns. Please always dial 999 in an emergency.
