SUCCESS! Grant scheme for creative, cultural and leisure businesses in Dover District

A grant scheme that supports creative, cultural and leisure businesses to expand and create new jobs has been extended to cover the Dover District.  The South-East Urban Coast Creative Enterprise Support Scheme (SUCCESS) is funded from the Regional Growth Fund (RGF).

The scheme will fund up to 50% of your total investment with grants available from £3,000 to £150,000.

The grants are designed to support investment costs to help grow your business, such as extra staff, new or extended premises, and new equipment. These costs must be over and above your current running costs, and they must also create new part or full time jobs, or safeguard existing jobs locally.

The grant must unlock investment that would not otherwise happen, so you will need to demonstrate that you have pursued other reasonable forms of finance, including conventional bank loans.
