Windrush Justice Fund
The Windrush Justice Fund is provided by Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI) in partnership with the Mayor of London.
The fund, launched by Patrick Vernon OBE and JCWI, aims to support a range of services and activities, including groups and organisations assisting people with applications to the Windrush Taskforce and the Windrush Compensation Scheme.
The Windrush Justice Fund will provide micro-grant funding to community groups and small civil society organisations with demonstrable expertise and reach, to support ongoing or planned outreach and advice work intended to help people affected by the Windrush crisis to resolve their immigration status, rebuild their lives and access hardship or compensation funds.
An estimated 500,000 people now living in the UK have been called the Windrush generation, in reference to the name of a ship which brought workers to the UK from Caribbean countries in 1948.
The deadline for applications is 30 June 2019
