Have you or a family member been affected by Windrush?

Are you or someone you know part of the Windrush generation?

The Windrush Compensation Scheme

Many thousands of innocent people have suffered because of the Windrush scandal due to serious Government Home Office errors.

You may be able to claim compensation if you, or a relative, suffered a loss because you were not able to demonstrate your lawful right to live in the UK.

The Government introduced the scheme in April 2019 and there are a wide range of losses you may claim for including:

  • Loss of employment and income
  • Loss of benefits
  • Access to housing
  • Access to education
  • Access to NHS Healthcare
  • Unlawful imprisonment
  • Access to driving licences
  • Access to banking
  • Impact on normal daily life
  • Travel restrictions
  • Emotional distress of separated families

Who is eligible to claim?

The scope of the Windrush compensation scheme is not limited to men and women who originally came to the UK from the Caribbean Commonwealth. Almost everyone originally from a Commonwealth country who arrived before 1st January 1973 is included.

If you have a right of abode or settled status (or are now a British citizen) and arrived to live in the UK before 31st December 1988 you will also be eligible to apply regardless of your nationality when you arrived – even if you are not a Commonwealth citizen.

  • Were you or a family member deported from the UK?
  • Denied British citizenship?
  • Refused permission to return to the UK?
  • Could not prove your right to work, claim benefits or access services in the UK?

The scheme is also open to:

  • Children and Grandchildren of Commonwealth citizens in certain circumstances
  • The estates of those who are now deceased such as Parents or Grandparents who would otherwise have been eligible for compensation
  • Close family members of eligible claimants where there has been a significant impact on their life or where there is evidence of certain direct financial costs.
