Rural broadband ISP and network builder GoFibre (BorderLink), which is deploying a 10Gbps capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network across the North of England and Scottish Borders area, has today announced the first five charity projects to secure funding under their inaugural £50k GoFurther Fund.

The GoFurther Fund was unveiled earlier this year in celebration of GoFibre’s full fibre broadband network being accessible to 50,000 premises across Scotland’s towns and villages. The five organisations, from across the regions of Fife, East Lothian and the Scottish Borders, received the funding after being selected from a pool of over 60 worthy applicants.

NOTE: GoFibre aims to cover 500,000 premises in the North of England and Scottish Borders by around the end of 2025 and is supported by an investment of £164m from Gresham House (here).

All of the chosen organisations are said to provide vital community services, including education and employability services for young people and the disabled community, social sessions that help tackle loneliness and isolation and support services for vulnerable young people.

List of Funding Recipients

Heids & Hearts (Fife) – £2,600

Tartan Talkers (Fife) – £3,000

Bridges Project (East Lothian) – £3,000

Into Work (East Lothian) – £3,000

Escape Youth Services (Borders) – £3,000

Neil Conaghan, CEO of 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. That’s why it is important for us to recognise and boost the incredible work of charities and organisations across Scotland.”

Once the next phase of expansion is complete, GoFibre predicts that their full fibre network should reach almost 120,000 premises in early 2024. As for the GoFurther Fund, it will be open again for applications in early 2024 – gofibre.co.uk/gofurtherfund.

    To be fair, GoFibre probably doesn’t even know where they are supposed to be building.
