Grants and funding

Funding for broadband installations is hotly contested, and new government schemes are frequently being launched as technology develops, and suppliers try to keep up with demand. We'll keep these pages updated with the available grants and funding options. If you find any we haven't listed here, let us know.

Stained Glass Windows in St Michael and All Angels, Witton Gilbert

Most of our grants are focused on the conservation of our historic buildings, rather than the introduction of new technologies; however, it might be worth exploring whether the National Lottery Heritage Fund could help. If you're thinking of bringing connectivity to your church building, and hoping to raise funds locally, you might find our fundraising guidance helpful. Alternatively, if you're in an area with poor broadband or mobile coverage, there might be a supplier-led solution to funding in the form of pursuing a wireless community broadband project or NET CS's rural mobile coverage initiative.
