This week (31/10/22), Freedom Fibre is launching The Freedom Fund, a community fund which will invest thousands of pounds in environmental projects in areas where it is rolling out its lightning-fast, full-fibre network.
The Freedom Fund – which opens to non-profit groups in and around Weaverham (Cheshire), Whitchurch (Shropshire), Irlam (Greater Manchester), and Culcheth (Cheshire) on Monday 31 October 2022 - welcomes applications for up to £250 per community project.
It is envisaged that The Freedom Fund will be extended to all build areas in 2023. Speaking on the launch of the Fund, Freedom Fibre's Chief Executive Officer, Neil McArthur, said:
"We are so proud to be the first alt-net in England to be launching a community fund – investing in the communities which we are working in is so important to us. I’m really looking forward to seeing the applications we receive.”
The Freedom Fund closes for applications on Friday 16 December at 5pm, so make sure to visit the Freedom Fund webpage to find out more about the scheme and its entry requirements, and submit your application.
Residents interested in connecting to Freedom Fibre's full-fibre broadband network can register their interest and the team will let you know if the network is available now, or coming soon to your location.
