Creative United, in partnership with Wandsworth Council, is launching a second edition of their free Re:Create business support programme for creative freelancers, artists, makers, and entrepreneurs in Wandsworth. Based on the success of the previous edition, the Re:Create 2023 programme offers participants the chance to access free business support, with the ultimate goal of helping their creative business thrive and be resilient for the future. This project is funded by the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund
A total of 50 artists, makers and creative enterprises, who have been trading for a minimum of 12 months will be selected to receive 1-1 business mentoring from an expert in creative enterprise. Selected Re:Create participants as well as other creatives based in the borough of Wandsworth have free access to a suite of especially created e-learning resources for 12 months (until September 2024).
The programme is keen to support individuals who are currently under-represented in the creative and cultural sectors or experience marginalisation, such as people of colour, those with disabilities or members of the LGBTQ+ community.

- 3 hours of free tailored 1-1 mentoring support from business coaches in the creative industries.
