SECCADS is an ambitious new programme of support for the Creative, Cultural and Digital sectors across Essex, Kent, and East Sussex until December 2020.

SECCADS is an ambitious new programme of support, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) for the Creative, Cultural and Digital sectors across Essex, Kent, and East Sussex. Between now and December 2020 it will help over 370 companies and sole-traders with business support or grants, giving a £2.5m boost to the creative economy in the South East.  

It offers £1,000 - £20,000 grants for up to 35% of project costs; 65% match-funding must be from private sources e.g. organisational profits, crowdfunding, Trusts & Foundations, a secured bank loan, personal contribution etc. Grants are not repayable – it offers equity-free investment.
