What is Take a Seat

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.

Please encourage shops to join the scheme to make Nottinghamshire an Age Friendly county!


The Take a Seat campaign is supported by the following organisations:
