Five charities from GoFibre rollout regions have received funding towards crucial projects from the altnet’s GoFurther Fund.

These charities were elected from over 60 applicants and include organisations that provide education and employability services for young people and the disabled community, social sessions that help tackle loneliness and isolation and after-school support and activities for children who come from deprived households.

The recipients were Heids & Herts (£2,600), Tartan Talkers (£3,000), Bridges Project (£3,000), Into Work (£3,000) and Escape Youth Services (£3,000).

The GoFurther Fund was unveiled earlier this year after GoFibre’s network passed 50,000 premises across Scotland’s towns and villages.

Neil Conaghan, CEO at GoFibre, said: “These five organisations are already making a difference across their communities, and their incredible efforts reinforce the idea that this kind of grassroots support can genuinely create a better future for the next generation.”

The GoFurther Fund will be open again for applications in early 2024.
