February 2023: Grants of up to £10,000 are available for community activities to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Windrush from The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK.
This historic anniversary is an important moment for communities to celebrate, commemorate and reflect upon the huge contribution that Windrush pioneers and their families have made in Birmingham.
To support community groups wanting to apply, The National Lottery Community Fund is running four free workshops. Sign-up to take part here ticketsource.co.uk/the-national-lottery-community-fund.
