Windrush Day Grant Scheme

Applications open for the Windrush 2021 Project Fund

Action needed by 10th March 2021

Community-led groups are being invited to bid for a share of up to £500,000 to develop and host events which celebrate the Windrush Generation and recognise their contribution to British Life. The annual Windrush Day Grant Scheme will provide up to £25,000 to local councils, charities and community groups seeking to create projects and host events for Windrush Day in 22 June 2021 and throughout the year.

Projects seeking funding need to demonstrate that they will bring communities together, create a lasting impact and improve education and learning through building a deeper understanding of the Windrush Generation and their contributions to British society. This year MHCLG would particularly like to hear from projects proposing to record the memories and testimonies of the Windrush Generation for posterity and also those with plans to organise activities with schools.
