Windrush Community Fund

Wed 6 Jan 2021

Application deadline: 12 February 2021 

Grants are available for charities, community or grassroots organisations for projects in the UK which raise awareness of the Windrush Scheme (documentation), the Windrush Compensation Scheme or both.

Projects awarded the minimum funding of £2,500 must be delivered within six months of receipt of funding.

Projects awarded between £2,501 and £25,000 must be delivered within 12 months of receipt of funding.

The Windrush Community Fund is provided by the Home Office and administered on its behalf by Voice4Change England.

The funding is intended to support the Fund’s objectives which are to:

  • 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.
