Take a seat campaign

We are proud to support the ‘take a seat’ campaign!

The initiative, called ‘Take a Seat’, is encouraging local businesses to provide a spare seat for the elderly and disabled who need a chair. The campaign, set up by Southway Housing and Age Friendly, has been supported by Northmoor Community Association and Arawak Walton.

It launched on Northmoor Road in Longsight in the hopes of making older people feel confident about accessing a space to sit when they need one.

Launching on Monday, ten businesses, including a hairdressers, estate agents, and grocers, have signed up to provide a designated seat and upport the needs of older customers. Read more here.
