Take a seat: Nottingham’s campaign to create more age-friendly high streets

This Centre for Ageing Better report features ‘Take a Seat’, a campaign developed by Nottingham City Council’s Age-Friendly Nottingham (AFN) partnership.

The campaign aims to tackle issues of social isolation and motivate older people to feel confident about leaving their homes and play an active part in their local communities.

It does this by encouraging local businesses and community premises to join the campaign and offer people a chance to take a seat and ‘catch their breath’.
