Better Business for All

What is Better Business for All (BBFA)?

It’s a local partnership between businesses, business support and regulators and across Devon, Plymouth, Somerset and Torbay to promote local economic prosperity, whilst maintaining public protection. BBFA aims to improve how regulatory services are delivered and to show how working with your local regulators can save you time and money, improve your competitiveness and help you grow your business.

The Growth Hub works in partnership with the Better Business for All (BBFA) initiative which brings together regulatory bodies in the Heart of the South West area. This short video explains the benefits of the partnership for businesses in Devon and Somerset.
