Windrush 75 Grant Scheme Closing

Applications are invited for Welsh Government Grant Funding to mark 75 years since MV Empire Windrush docked in Tilbury.

This moment symbolises the Windrush Generation and crystalises how migration to the Wales has shaped our society today. Welsh Government again want to embrace this anniversary, on Thursday June 22nd, wholeheartedly.

This year, it is especially important that we celebrate, and recognise, its wide historic, and present-day significance. And we will again be funding both local and national Windrush events.

We also remain committed to seeking justice for the Windrush Elders in line with the Wendy Williams report published on 19 July 2018.

Windrush Celebration Day recognises and celebrates the contributions of men and women from across the Commonwealth who helped to build a modern Wales and made this country their home.

The Windrush 75 Grant aims to help support events that celebrate our Windrush Generation and contribute to the Welsh Government’s commitment to deliver an anti-racist Wales by 2030.

The funding will provide the opportunity for organisations across Wales to receive support. To request an application form for Windrush 75 funding, please contact Sue Vincent-Jones c/o The Equality and Human Rights Division: as soon as possible. You will then be sent an application form which will need to be completed and returned by Monday May 29th 2023.
