I have met with David Pugh, Chief Executive of Prime Cymru, to discuss how Delyn residents can benefit from the schemes offered by the Prince of Wales initiative for mature enterprise in Wales.
Prime Cymru is a registered charity and the only organisation in Wales dedicated to providing practical support to people aged 50 and over who want to become and remain economically active.
Prime Cymru states on its website that:
Economic activity amongst the over 50s is a critical problem in Wales. Over 240,000 people aged 50 to state pension age are not working – this equates to nearly 38% of the total number of people in this age group with a large number dependent on benefits.
It was founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2001 in response to letters he had received from many people saying that they felt that after the age of 50 they were on the ‘scrap heap’ and they had faced insurmountable problems in securing paid employment because of their age.
