More help has been made available for people who are unemployed or economically inactive in the Welshpool area.

PRIME Cymru, a charity founded by HRH The Prince of Wales, are launching a brand-new project which offers mature individuals bespoke, one-to-one support to find a job, set up in business or discover training and volunteering opportunities.

PRIME People East, which will cover Powys, Wrexham and Flintshire, will support those aged 25 and over to move closer to the world of work.  

A dedicated team of Development Officers and volunteer mentors will focus on building clients’ confidence, improving IT skills, creating a great CV, refining interview techniques, and supporting them into work experience or further training.

The project can also provide free work-related certificates, including First Aid, Health & Safety, Food Hygiene and Control of Substances Hazardous to Health.

For anyone looking to become self-employed, PRIME Cymru has a wealth of experience facilitating business start-ups with expert support and guidance.

Janet Davies, Development Officer for North Powys, said: “I am looking forward to getting started on this new project and helping local people in Powys to achieve their goals of looking for work, voluntary work and training, during this challenging time”. 

The PRIME People East project is supported by the Active Inclusion Fund, managed by Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) with funding from the European Social Fund. It aims to improve the lives of people and communities in Wales by raising skills and helping people become economically active.
