Chapter 3 is a team of three motivated and highly skilled mature individuals with a passion for what we do. We have a wide range of skills and experience and have worked with mature economically inactive individuals for over four years with a wealth of experience in mature enterprise. We strive to deliver excellence, integrity and positive outcomes for clients, our partners and all those we work with. We work with a number of skilled and trusted associates who have a track record of delivery with the 50+ age group, alongside committed, enthusiastic volunteers. At Chapter 3 we recognise that there are many barriers preventing the economically inactive 50+ population from achieving productive and fulfilling lives. Our experience, supported by a number of recent reports (the Missing Million, Fuller Working Lives, The over 50s, the new work generation and A new vision for older workers), shows that there are a number of factors in play that are preventing older people from re-engaging in remunerative activity.
