PRIME Cymru provides free support for mature individuals in Wales to set up in business, find employment, or develop skills through training and volunteering opportunities.

Thinking of starting your own business? Or maybe you’ve already started to explore the possibility of becoming self-employed, but need a little extra guidance? PRIME Cymru can help.

Self-employment is often a very viable option for older workers as it can offer:

  • Financial independence
  • The chance to use all the skills built up over a lifetime of working
  • Flexible working hours
  • Opportunity to rise to a new challenge
  • Personal development and motivation
  • A lifestyle choice to suit you
