What is The Match?

Small creative businesses and self-employed creatives are the lifeblood of east London. They’re what makes this area distinctive, but many are struggling for survival in the current crisis, and may slip between the cracks of current government support available.

Meanwhile, lots of skilled professionals have been furloughed from their jobs, and are finding themselves with spare time and skills to share.

The Match aims to join the dots, matching skilled professionals who are furloughed from their jobs with small businesses for strategic and practical business support during the Covid-19 pandemic.

This scheme is also open to voluntary sector organisations and community groups who need support.

If you are a furloughed worker with time and skills to offer or a business /organisation looking for support, we’d love to hear from you!
