Come In and Rest
Inspired by similar schemes in Manchester and Nottingham, “Come In and Rest” invites older people to pop in for a moment and sit down, without the obligation to make a purchase.
Want to sign up?
Participating businesses put a sticker in the window to alert people that it's a welcoming place where older people can sit for a few minutes when they need to:
Come In and Rest is a joint venture of Leeds City Council and Time to Shine. It has been developed by a steering group of older people themselves, and is in line with the Age Friendly Charter, adopted in October 2016.
The scheme officially launched on 25 January 2018, with the support of Cllr Rebecca Charlwood.
We will keep a list of the businesses that have signed up on this page.
Together we can all make Leeds a more age friendly city.
