Supporting Local

At 4theRegion we’ve always been passionate about supporting local, which is why we made it the theme of our recent Swansea Conference.

When we spend our money with a local small business, it creates benefits for local people, and recirculates in our economy, where it has a much more positive social impact. Read More
