Consultation description

The Prime Minister and the Home Secretary have made a pledge to support those of the Windrush generation who have faced difficulties in establishing their status under the immigration system. They have committed to do right by those who have contributed so much and are such an integral part of the country.

As a first step, the Home Secretary has announced the launch of a call for evidence which is an opportunity for those who have been affected and their families by this situation to tell us what happened, how it has affected you and what you believe the planned compensation scheme needs to address. We want to engage with the individuals and communities most closely affected, listen to your concerns and, in particular, understand properly how we might address them through a compensation scheme.

This call for evidence process will run until 8 June 2018 and is the first step in making sure that the government provides redress for your financial losses, as part of making sure we do whatever it takes to put this right.
