PLANED organised taster courses that encouraged people to increase their skills, within a project called Community And Skills Hub (CASH). The range and variety of courses were in response to the needs identified by communities, partners and business groups as being essential to meet gaps in local skills. Examples are courses in carpentry, plumbing and traditional countryside skills such as hedge laying or coppicing. Where possible, courses were arranged in local centres to cut the travelling distance for participants.
Pembrokeshire Enterprise Network brings together representatives of business support organisations working in the county: its aim is to ensure that the support available is meeting the needs of the business community, and that members are kept updated on all members’ activities.
