A new fund has launched to raise awareness and support engagement among those eligible for the Government’s Windrush Compensation Schemes.
Charitable, community and grassroots organisations that work with affected communities can bid for an award between £2,500 to £25,000 to help ensure all people affected by Windrush are aware of the support available and are not missing out on the schemes.
The Home Office fund has been designed with the Windrush Cross-Government Working Group and will be administered by Voice4Change England. It has been set up to encourage applications from those organisations that are led by or work with affected communities who faced difficulties demonstrating their lawful status in the UK and suffered losses as a result. This covers people who settled in the UK from a Commonwealth country before 1 January 1973 and people of any nationality who were settled before the end of 1988.
