The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland is delighted to announce a new partnership with Broadband provider, Fibrus Networks Ltd.
This week saw the launch of the Fibrus Community Fund enabling rural communities to stay connected online. The fund is aimed at addressing digital poverty and will award grants of £1,000 to enable local groups and organisations, to provide access to digital technology for the most vulnerable.
The fund has a particular focus on supporting grassroots organisations that support older people and young people aged 18 and under.
The Fibrus Community Fund will open in four phases in tandem with Fibrus’ build programme of new hyperfast full fibre broadband, with phase one opening at the end of September.
