Swindon & Wiltshire Initiative

What is the Swindon & Wiltshire Initiative?

Established in 2010, the Swindon & Wiltshire Initiative grew out of Great Western Enterprises (GWE). As a Certified B Corp, our purpose is to bring business leaders together to create a prosperous local area where business and communities thrive.

We stand side by side with our members to make this possible, by encouraging local councils and regional bodies to communicate with each other to create joined up solutions.

We challenge central government policy over issues that impact upon Swindon & Wiltshire and the wider South West, from infrastructure, transport and digital connectivity to energy, housing and skills.

We help businesses overcome their shared and individual challenges, so that Swindon & Wiltshire continues to grow economically and in terms of culture, creativity, connectivity and talent.
