In partnership with Swansea University’s Enterprise Team, 4theRegion is building a new community for regional start-ups and entrepreneurs. Connect, learn and grow with support from our regional alliance. We’ll champion your business and make introductions, to give you the best possible start. Join for just £5 a month.
South West Wales Connected is a new kind of CRP for our region. With Transport for Wales, we are connecting with communities along the railway line to support placemaking, community projects and joined up working, helping local places increase and improve rail travel, and celebrating what our region has to offer.
We need greener, cleaner, healthier and better connected travel and transport infrastructure for South West Wales. Join us to share perspectives on what the government should be investing in, what local authorities could be doing, and how people, businesses and communities can be part of the solution.
Starting in early 2018, 4theRegion began a programme of events and conversations with people and organisations across the region, with the question: What can WE do?
Our message is clear: The future of South West Wales is in OUR hands, and we can achieve amazing things if we work together, pool resources and step up to make change happen – for ourselves, for our communities, for the region.
Our members keep us informed about the challenges and opportunities in their worlds, so we can connect the dots and facilitate greater collaboration. Become a member to join our Sector Panels and Working Groups – have a voice, share your views and get involved in the mission to transform the region.

OUR IMPACT AREAS
If businesses and organisations in this region buy more from each other, we can keep more wealth here in South West Wales, develop our supply chain, and create more opportunities for people and local businesses.
Tourism is a key economic driver for the region. An integrated, sustainable travel network is essential to prosperity and well-being. We want to help partners collaborate better across the region to develop both.
Regeneration is something we should all do together. How can we ensure that major regional projects are designed and delivered in a way that provides economic and social benefits for the region over the long term?
In a fast changing world, we think the well-being economy will be the battleground of the next 10 years, and successful places will be those that build prosperity by prioritising people, health, quality of life, the environment and equality.
A circular economy is restorative and regenerative by design. We must move away from our linear economy (make, use, dispose), closing the loop to conserve resources and ensure long term sustainability.
