As an alliance of people, businesses and organisations with a common interest in South West Wales, our region needs us, more than ever, to work together to support our economy, our communities and the planet.

All sectors have a vital role to play in regenerating our economy, improving well-being and creating a sustainable future. I have been really impressed with 4theRegion’s events and conversations, which bring such a range of organisations together into a dynamic space where the possibilities for collaboration, innovation and positive change feel boundless! There is a generous spirit in 4theRegion activities, where people want to give their ideas, talent, time and energy to shared concerns, and to support each other in collective efforts to improve our region. I hope Fairer Future can make a valuable contribution.
