Once again, we are joining forces with Wandsworth Council to offer local creative businesses free, tailored one-to-one support to help them thrive. Re:Create Wandsworth is Wandsworth Council’s bespoke business support programme for creative businesses, delivered in partnership with Creative United. This project has received £37,500 from the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

Wandsworth has been announced London Borough of Culture for 2025 and Re:Create is part of this ongoing work to grow the local artistic and creative business sector and foster the next generation of artists and makers.  

If you are a creative, self-employed individual or small enterprises in the London borough of Wandsworth, we invite you to the Launch and Networking event of Re:Create Wandsworth at The Bedford in Balham on 27 June at 9am. Here you will learn more about the programme, how it can benefit you and your business, and how to get involved.

Book your spot at the Launch and Networking Event here.

Creatives who went through 2023’s programme will be there to talk about how they have benefited and developed with Re:Create’s help.

Last year’s programme saw significant impact on local businesses, with 93% of participants reporting increased confidence in how to grow and sustain their business, and 74% reporting an improved understanding of how to increase income in their business. As well as these five full time jobs were safeguarded and three full time jobs were made as part of the business’s involvement in the programme.
