  • Demonstrate how responsible business can play a crucial role in driving a fairer, greener future for Swansea.
  • Share relevant resources from BITC’s cost-of-living campaign and other free-to-access employment and skills materials and programmes. Links to Welsh Government and Business Wales materials will be provided.
