FullFibre has launched a Community Investment Fund to promote digital connectivity in 80 of its current build towns.

Local charities and organisations can apply for funding for digital projects that contribute to the health and well-being of their communities.

The first project to be approved is the Badsey & Aldington Community Computer Club, which supports local residents in improving digital skills. The money raised from the Community Investment Fund will buy new equipment

Matt Smith, Head of Public Procurement and Engagement at FullFibre, said: “Every project is individually assessed, and we will do our best to put the Community Investment Fund to good use and make sure it benefits as many of the 80 plus towns that we are active in as we can.”

CEO Oliver Helm adds: “This is a real force for good and a brilliant opportunity for us to get more involved with the communities we are working in.

“Investing in building digital capacity and better connectivity, whatever that looks like, is a very exciting place to start a project.”
