Founded in 2001 by HRH The Prince of Wales, and the only autonomous Welsh charity in the Prince’s charities group, PRIME Cymru is dedicated to helping people aged 50 and over in Wales remain or become economically active by providing ongoing support for older people who wish to develop and establish a business idea.
Since its inception PRIME Cymru has helped more than 1,500 people in Wales to set up their own business, and in the process created more than 2,500 jobs.
In most recent times this has been achieved by recruiting and training volunteer mentors whose skills and experience are made available to bring help, support and guidance to the charity’s client group of older people. Our mentors are mature, trained people who volunteer their time and expertise to help people achieve their goals.
All our services are provided free of charge to any individual seeking our assistance.
