About Us

lLaunched in October 2011, we are a small family business based in The Grainger Suite, Gosforth who passionately believe in the benefits of well run, properly advertised trade referral systems.

Millicent Warham, one of the Co-Founders, has worked with this business model for many years in the South for Checkatrade and understands inside out how it can benefit the general public, tradespersons and local worthy causes.

Christine York the MD has many years experience working in IT and has built a user friendly website that makes researching and selecting a tradesperson very easy. 

In the Summer of 2010 Millie was literally in the car one day reading in the newspaper that the North East had the worst cowboy traders problem in the UK and she had a Eureka moment and decided to bring this model to the North East of England Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, Durham and Tesside now had their own unique service for researching home improvelents specialists. Christine York decided to back Millie as she was already running a successful business but was looking for a new investment. Hence on October 17th 2011 Checked and Vetted was publicly launched.
