Welcome to We are Your Local!

I’m Natalie, the face behind the business. Born and raised in Swansea, I’ve always been passionate about spreading the love for our local and independent businesses across our vibrant city. With family at the heart of everything I do, I wanted to create a platform that brings together our wonderful business owners to build something truly special.

Our journey started with a simple idea: to support local businesses and help them thrive in our local economy. To me, these businesses are more than just places to shop or dine – they are the heart and soul of our community. I want to see them succeed, grow, and become sustainable pillars of our local economy.

At We are Your Local, we go beyond social media to promote our members. We pride ourselves on being a true multimedia presence. We have a podcast, social media channels, and soon, an in-print magazine, all with a hyper-focus on supporting local businesses. Our aim is to showcase the amazing entrepreneurs in Swansea and the incredible work they do.

I’ve been told that bringing people together is my thing. As a mum of five boys, creating connections and building a sense of community is central to who I am. This ethos is woven into the fabric of We are Your Local. We’re here to support, uplift, and celebrate the independent businesses that make Swansea so unique.

Whether you’re a new start-up or an established business, We are Your Local is here to help you shine. We believe in the power of local, and we’re dedicated to helping you reach new heights. So join us, and let’s build something amazing together.

Together, we can make Swansea THE city of independents.
