Robert Jenrick – 2021 Comments on the Windrush Generation

The comments made by Robert Jenrick, the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, on 22 June 2021.

The Windrush Generation and their descendants have had – and continue to have – a profound impact on Britain’s social, cultural and economic life.

This year the continued contribution of Windrush descendants has been felt as deeply as ever, with British-Caribbean communities coming to the fore to support our nation through their incredible contributions to the NHS, councils and every other part of public life.

This Windrush Day I encourage everyone to join in, whether virtually or in person, and enjoy one of the hundreds of fantastic local events taking place across the country.
