Creative and digital business support scheme extended

East Sussex businesses in the creative, cultural and digital sectors will be able to access further help after a support scheme has been extended.

The South East Creatives programme – set up by the South East Creative Economy Network to help the creative and digital sector across East Sussex, Kent and Essex – will now be available until June 2021.

The programme’s top-up grant scheme, which offers non-repayable grants of up to 35% towards growth projects costing up to £4,000, is receiving further investment part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

South East Creatives also funds workshops and events, which are still taking place virtually during the pandemic, a Digital and Data expertise programme and an Intern Support programme which matches the needs of businesses while providing an opportunity for a student or graduate.
