Windrush Community Fund

Deadline 30th June 2021

The Windrush Community Fund is up to £500,000 of financial support available to charity, community or grassroots organisations across the UK to fund projects which raise awareness of the Windrush Scheme (documentation), the Windrush Compensation Scheme or both.

The funding will support the objectives of the Community Fund:

  • Increase awareness and visibility of the Windrush Scheme (documentation), Windrush Compensation Scheme, or both and the support available
  • Reach more communities and individuals who may have been affected by their inability to prove their lawful status in the UK

In addition, the Community Fund also seeks to:

  • Ensure that individuals and communities have accurate information about the schemes, how to apply, and that any myths surrounding the schemes are addressed. This could involve, for instance, promoting example cases.
  • Build capacity at a community and grassroots level to support those affected to access the Windrush Scheme (documentation), Windrush Compensation Scheme, or both.
