I have learnt so much since I joined “Rest Less”. There are lots of informative articles, and you get a real sense that the people who write the articles, really understand the needs of my generation. Thank you

As a social gerontologist I find this website incredibly informative and practical for all older people, whether at mid-life or later life. It’s well thought out and constructed, as well as being entertaining. I look forward to receiving it and regularly pass on content to others who I know could benefit from it. Keep it up!

The content is relevant and up to date. It’s not patronising. It’s entertaining and thought provoking. Quite frankly, I’m impressed.

I look forward to the email from Rest Less with lots of helpful advice in easy read formats that prompt you to more in-depth advise suiting your own needs & interests. The website is easy to navigate, very informative & for me it is a positive part of my own well-being, which we can all do with in times of such uncertainty. The fact that it’s a free site is a bonus for everyone’s inclusion. Thank you & well done to all contributes much appreciated

Restless has fantastic information. Anything from great leisure activities to financial advice to ideas on your next career move. Restless is so inspirational. The information posted online and sent in the email newsletters is so current and useful. It is obvious that hours of research have gone into the articles. I have found great information about my next career move, which is the best diet for me to be following as well as financial advice on pensions. And you are also able to connect with like-minded people to chat about any topic. I would thoroughly recommend that you go and take a look

I stumbled upon Rest Less when searching for help on changing careers after a 6 year career break. Incredible helpful with this as well as many other aspects of middle aged life. A fantastic, friendly, and informative site. Thank you 🙂

When you get to a certain age it is very hard to get a job & get recognised as a person with valuable experience to offer. When this site came to my attention I had just been made redundant after 14 years in the same company. I am 67 & after applying for well over 80 jobs I thought I was being forced to take retirement as my lot but this site with its inspirational comments/helpful tips & advice gave me the impetus to carry on. I recently secured my 1st interview & the well wishes of everyone has been overwhelming. This site has so many people messaging with their good stories, their bad stories or just how they feel at the time & there has been an outpouring of expressions of welcome & good for you/go for it that you can’t help feel good about yourself.

This is in my opinion the number one site for people to share ideas, thoughts and experiences with like-minded people. It is the most friendly site I have visited with so many members willing to give support and friendly comments. I am pleased to be a member of this lovely ‘family’ of friends.

REST LESS is the fastest growing online community for the over 50s with tips about topics covering jobs, money, health and lifestyle. It’s a good place to find useful information about many areas of interest for our age group. As a Tai Chi Instructor it was also lovely to see they recently shared an interesting article on Tai Chi and its benefits.

I stumbled on this site via Facebook, so took a wee look. I have to say, for a free service, I was immensely impressed. I signed up to the site, but as yet am still trying to find time to go through it all, but what impressed me was the amount of free and subsidised online courses that are available. I am gradually coming off furlough, so time is limited but I would recommend this site to anyone. The range of helpful topics and information available is fabulous! It costs nothing to sign up so you have nothing to lose.

I highly recommend this incredibly useful company. As a resource for people who are looking to find their way to new ventures, this is your one stop site. There is also an app to keep Rest Less by your side. What makes these people stand out head and shoulders above any competition is that they take the time to answer your emails and give you honest and positive support. This is more than just an employment site. It is multifunctional. I have been motivated to not only apply for a job via Restless emails but have learned more about other life choices. Keep up the good work Team Rest Less
