Come In and Rest
'Come in and Rest' is a scheme through which Leeds businesses and services of all sorts can show that older people are welcome to pop in for a while and sit down, with no obligation to buy anything or use a service. Come in and Rest is inspired by similar schemes in Manchester and Nottingham.
Businesses and services which join the scheme put a 'Come in and Rest' sticker in their window to let people know that it’s a welcoming place where older people can sit for a few minutes when they need to. (See map and list below).
Businesses and organisations can sign up to the Come in and Rest scheme only, or this can be part of your Action Plan when you sign up to become more Age and Dementia Friendly.
Please sign up to join the Come in and Rest scheme, or get in touch with one of the Time to Shine Communities Workers if you would like more information.
