Windrush Generations Matter UK 2020 celebrated Caribbean American Heritage Month with Dr Claire Nelson and Mark Milward. The purpose of the event was to provide a historical perspective on the Windrush Scandal and to recognize the significant contribution made by Caribbean Communities to Britain.
There was a wide range of topics covered that demonstrated senior level experience and insight into areas including mental health and spiritual care, community economic wellbeing, and youth development, members of the Home Office Windrush Taskforce also joined the dialogue. There was a recognition that celebration of anniversaries and initiatives that focused on community empowerment were important such as UN International Decade for People of African Descent, Windrush Day Thanksgiving in the Family and the Caribbean Day on August 1.
