Age Cymru and Business in the Community Cymru has teamed up to deliver the Age at Work programme across Wales.

Published on 12 November 2019 11:18 AM

Dear Sirs,

Age Cymru and Business in the Community Cymru has teamed up to deliver the Age at Work programme across Wales. 

Funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, the five year programme will support people aged 50+ to remain in the workplace and plan for later working life as well as encourage businesses in Wales to become more age-friendly in retaining, retraining and recruiting older workers. 

To highlight the many benefits of employing older workers (aged 50+) and having a multi-generational workforce, we would love to hear about the positive experiences of your older readers in the workplace and how their employer may have supported them with, for example, re-training or flexible working. 

And we’d like to know whether training and development opportunities are being offered to workers of all ages. 

We’d also like to hear about the reasons why older people continue working.  Is it simply about money or is it also about maintaining social networks? 

For an informal chat about their experiences as an older worker, or as an employer taking positive actions to support their older workers, your readers may call me on 029 2078 0061. 

They may also download our simple survey in either paper format or via Survey Monkey at www.agecymru.org.uk

Thank you for helping us with this important project. 

Yours faithfully 

Jill Salter,

Age at Work Programme Manager
