Strategic Initiative - Action for Race Equality - Windrush Justice (REF: 19453)

Report of the Managing Director of BHE


The Committee considered a report of the Managing Director of BHE requesting funding of £400,000 over three years as a strategic initiative to Action for Race Equality for the Windrush Justice programme, a pan-funder initiative developed by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. The Managing Director of BHE introduced the report and presented the proposals to the Committee. In response to a question from the Chair, the Managing Director of BHE confirmed that any compensation funds recovered as part of the initiative would be directed to the individuals to whom they were due.

RESOLVED – That the Grants Committee of the BHE Board approve a grant of £400,000 over three years (£160,000; £160,000; £80,000) to Action for Race Equality towards the pan-funder Windrush Justice programme. City Bridge Trust’s funding is restricted to the small grants, capacity building, and convening elements of work, with all monies restricted for the benefit of Londoners.
