Windrush Foundation

WINDRUSH FOUNDATION HISTORY

 

Windrush Foundation (hereafter called the ‘Organisation’) is a registered Charity established in 1996, but we started work in 1995. The organisation plays the leading role in preserving the history and heritage of the arrival of post-war Caribbean settlers at Tilbury Docks, Essex, on 22 June 1948 and celebrates their contributions to the making of modern Britain

 

MISSION STATEMENT

To promote good community relations, endeavouring to eliminate discrimination on the grounds of race, encouraging equality of opportunity for all, and making the public aware of the contribution of African Caribbean settlers and their descendants to Britain’s prosperity and heritage. To celebrate the contribution of those who landed at Tilbury Docks, Essex, England on 22 June 1948 on the ship Empire Windrush.

 

SERVICE PROVISION

The Organisation holds conferences, workshops, lectures, exhibitions, conducts research, etc and publishes material about Windrush and other African Caribbean settlers. We believe that the Organisation can play an important part in developing self-esteem, a sense of purpose, worth, belonging and identity among African & Caribbean youths, as well as producing more awareness of, regard for and understanding of people of different backgrounds in Britain. We provide heritage and educational materials that help individuals appreciate their value in the community.

 

The services of the Organisation are targeted at:

(i)  Youth of African and Caribbean background;

(ii) The British Public.

We work with other organisations on projects that support our mission.
