THE FUTURE OF THIS REGION IS IN OUR HANDS

WHEREVER YOU LIVE IN SOUTH WEST WALES

YOU CAN BE PART OF THE CONNECTED REGION

SO TOGETHER WE CAN BUILD A NEW ECONOMY

What Do You Want For The Future Of South West Wales?

4theRegion is on a mission to help make change happen across Neath Port Talbot, Swansea, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire.  We bring together individuals, businesses, community groups, campaigners and changemakers who are doing great things in the region, and who want to collaborate to help shape the future. 

We think people, communities and businesses should have a voice.  We think the region needs a shared vision of what we want.  And we don’t think it’s right when big decisions are made behind closed doors by small groups of people, without engagement or involvement.
