South East Creatives website now live!


SECCADS has launched a new website to promote the range business support activities and grants available to Creative Industries sector businesses, sole traders and freelancers across the South East Local Enterprise Partnership region (which includes Kent, Medway, East Sussex, Essex, Colchester, Southend and Thurrock).Whilst the project will continue to be known as SECCADS, South East Creatives has been selected as the outward facing, sector friendly identifier for the project.

The website,, whilst still under development, is now live with a ‘holding page’ and access to information about the four strands of the programme available for SMEs to access:

  •          Workshops and mentoring
  •          Business Growth – Job Creation
  •          Grants
  •          Interns Support


Social media marketing will begin in the near future, and we would kindly ask that if you post or share anything about the South East Creatives (SECCADS) programme that you use the hashtag #southeastcreatives (in lowercase).

Further updates on the programme will be provided at the next SECEN meeting, which is being held on 10 July at Marlow Kit in Canterbury, Kent.
