Unemployed people in Stoke-on-Trent who are over 50 will be able to seek business advice thanks to a new partnership between a pottery manufacturer and a charity set up by the Prince of Wales.
The Prince's Initiative For Mature Enterprise will host a free course to encourage older people in the city into business.
It will be held at the Tunstall headquarters of tableware firm Dudson, which has offered the charity free use of its Scotia Road offices.
