This week, we speak to 4theRegion member Julie Jones, co-director of Gower Gas & Oil, about how businesses can benefit community cohesion in order to create a positive relationship between businesses and local well-being. Julie shares her experience with projects that Gower Gas & Oil have supported, such as the ‘Don’t Dance Alone’ campaign hosted by The Wave to highlight some of the difficulties currently facing older people in Wales and the creation of the Gower Isolation Support Group, a community group designed to coordinate support and information during the Covid-19 crisis.
