In 1948, the United Kingdom brought 492 people from the Caribbean, including children, on the Queen's Empire Windrush boat. Many of these immigrants spent their lives working for the UK’s National Health Service (NHS). A service that depends on the talents of its diverse workforce even today, with over 200 nationalities employed there.

This year (2023) marks the 75th anniversary of the founding of the NHS and the Windrush generation (Read more on the BBC website).

We are excited to team up with the University of Lancaster, All4 Maternity, and One Thought to invest in mental health research for a new generation of healthcare workers - this time midwives - coming to the UK from overseas.

We hope this investment into well-being and mental health provides midwives and the families they work with ongoing positive mental health outcomes for a new generation of healthcare providers.
