The Windrush Cymru Project

Date joined: 18/09/20


The Windrush Cymru Project – Our Voices, Our Stories, Our History, funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund, is a project which directly responds to a call from elders of the Windrush Generation who wanted to ensure that the legacy of their generation is captured for posterity.

This project is about collecting, recording, documenting, sharing, and celebrating the contributions of the Windrush generation who came to UK between 1948 and 1988. Although the Windrush period of immigration is usually documented as between 1948 and 1973, this project extends the period by 15 years to include the experiences of more citizens who moved to UK and eventually Wales, in response to Britain’s post-war recruitment drive.
