New PRIME Cymru Projects for the over 54s launched in many regions of Wales

Exciting new PRIME Cymru projects have been launched in Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Carmarthenshire, Neath Port Talbot, Conwy and Denbighshire and Flintshire and Wrexham.

The new projects are aimed at people who are aged over 54, who are economically inactive or who are claiming Employment Support Allowance. PRIME Cymru will be providing free one to one support and guidance from dedicated staff to help participants take the first steps towards finding employment, relevant volunteering or training opportunities or setting up in business.

We can offer a range of services to people taking part including: FREE 1-2-1 support to gain confidence and increase motivation, basic computer skills, how to create a good C.V., interview techniques and employability skills, support to move into volunteering or further learning/education, and self-employment mentoring to set up a new business.

Having been unemployed for a long time and being 62 years old I honestly thought my working days were over. I felt no one would want to employ an “old woman” like me…I was at the end of my tether. Then I was referred to PRIME Cymru and everything started to change for the better. I got tailored support and genuine encouragement to look at what I could do. They helped me secure a work experience placement and because of that I secured part time paid work. I now feel I have something to live for and look forward to getting up in the morning instead of dreading another long day on my own. I love my new job and have made new friends, thanks PRIME Cymru.
