South East LEP COVID-19 Recovery Funds
As part of the South East Local Enterprise Partnership’s (SELEP) focus to support businesses and skills in 2021, the LEP has made available £4.4m for its new COVID-19 Recovery Funds.
The funding focuses on support for businesses recovering from the impacts of the pandemic, and to support investment in skills in response to the employment crisis experienced in 2020/21 as a result of COVID-19.
About the South East LEP
SELEP is a genuine partnership for growth between business, government and education. We put the role of enterprise – as the driving motor of the economy – at the heart of everything we do; and we work in partnership with central government and its key agencies to pursue and attract major investment into the South East to deliver significant economic growth.
One of 38 LEPs established by the government, our role is to forge a partnership which properly understands the economic challenges and opportunities of our area, encourage an environment which delivers prosperity and to be directly accountable to local people and local businesses. LEPs decide what the priorities should be for investment in roads, buildings, and facilities in the area as part of an integrated approach to growth and infrastructure delivery.
We represent the largest LEP area in England outside London, in terms of population and economic output, and cover an area encompassing the local authority areas of East Sussex, Essex, Kent, Medway, Southend and Thurrock. Head to southeastlep.com to find out more.
