IMPACT AREA

THE UK’S FIRST WELLBEING REGION

We think people and businesses should play to their strengths and focus on what they’re best at.  The same goes for the region!  What we have here in South West Wales is an amazing natural environment, brilliant quality of life, friendly communities… and the opportunity to make Well-Being our unique selling point, our regional brand, and our shared purpose. 

That’s what all of you have been telling us you want, and so that’s our mission for the region – to build our shared identity as the home of Well-Being in the UK, implementing the values of the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act, doing things differently, following our own path, and putting the well-being of people and planet at the heart of everything.
