The deadline for applications is 21 January 2019 and you can find out more at the link below.

The Minister for Faith and Integration announced a national Windrush Day on 22 June each year, backed by MHCLG funding.
The Windrush Day Grant invites local authorities, charities and community groups to submit bids for funding.
