Consumer education is about giving people the skills, attitudes, knowledge and understanding necessary to become an effective consumer.
The Wise Guys website www.wiseguys.org.uk has been established since 2008 with the primary objective of educating students with learning disabilities on life skills required to become informed and confident consumers.
East Sussex County Council Trading Standards Service in Partnership with East Sussex Learning Disability Team will soon be launching its sister site. The extension of the site will provide information and advice to assist all people to gain further understanding of their rights and ultimately more independence.
This website was developed by East Sussex County Council to give adults in the county information on consumer rights.
It has information that will help people make smart decisions in their everyday life and hopefully empower people to become more confident consumers.
