The Windrush Community Fund is open to charities, community organisations and/or grassroots groups to bid for financial assistance to help ensure that organisations and groups can raise awareness and support engagement among those eligible for the government’s Windrush Scheme and Windrush Compensation Scheme. This support is available to fund activities across the UK. Awards range from a minimum of £2,500 to a maximum of £25,000.

Voice 4 Change England will be assisting community groups who apply for the fund, with final decisions on funding being made by the Windrush Cross- Government Working Group and Home Office.
