Age Friendly Take a Seat Scheme

Older people, people with a disability or chronic illness looking to take a break and have a sit down while they are out and about can now get help from the Take a Seat initiative.

Local shops who display the We are Age Friendly sticker will offer people the chance to sit down and a warm welcome.

Some businesses will also offer a drink and, if accessible, use of their toilet facilities.

For more information see Nottinghamshire County Council’s Take a Seat page and Nottingham City Council’s  Take a Seat page.

In the South Broxtowe area, Beeston and Stapleford are taking part, so far. Scroll down, from the link above, for a list of shops that have signed up to this excellent scheme.

For Wollaton, see the list here.
