Resources and Support

SELEP Skills COVID-19 Recovery Fund

The SELEP COVID-19 Recovery Funds Programme is a £4.4m programme of support in the areas of business support and skills. It has been used to support the recovery of the economy in 2021 and 2022, investing directly in those areas across the South East most affected by the pandemic, and providing businesses with the tools they need to build back stronger.

As part of this funding programme, £2m was earmarked for the Skills COVID-19 Recovery Fund, which has been split into three separate programmes to ensure that the funds are being put to best use.

Tackling local skills challenges and building thriving and inclusive local economies.

We are working to give a clear employer voice on skills and to ensure an understanding of current and future skills needs and labour market challenges.
