Phase 2 of the Windrush Community Fund is open for applications from groups and organisations that can raise awareness of the government's Windrush Compensation Scheme in their community. 

If you work with a community affected by the government treatment of Windrush generation people and their families (who, through no fault of their own, were unable to prove their lawful right to live and work in the UK), your organisation can apply for a grant of £2,500-25,000. Local authorities and individuals cannot apply. 

Your support and engagement work with the community could include:

  • Outreach events promoted in the community.
  • Promoting and sharing marketing materials to raise awareness of the compensation available. 
  • Communications campaigns, either online or face-to-face.
  • Using other communication channels, such as local radio or social media. 

Collaborative bids, where organisations come together to bid as a consortium, are also welcome.

Applications close on Wednesday 30 June 2021.
