Happy National Windrush Day!

Windrush Day is recognised across the country every year on 22 June.

2022 marks 74 years since Caribbean migrants arrived on the Empire Windrush to Tilbury Docks to help rebuild Britain after the Second World War.  


Why do we celebrate Windrush Day?

Today is not just about reflecting on a moment in history, it’s about communities coming together to reminisce and celebrate the immense contributions that people from the Caribbean have made to Britain and will continue to make.

It is about highlighting the amazing legacy of the Windrush Generation and their descendants to British Society.
