The compensation scheme for those of the Windrush generation that might have been affected is in the process of being established.

On 19 July, the Home Office launched a consultation on a Windrush Compensation Scheme, the consultation period will run for 12 weeks ending on 11 October. The consultation is seeking views the scheme’s design and operation including the scope of the scheme and what types of loss should be compensated for. The scheme will be set up as soon as possible, after the consultation closes.

The Home Office is promoting the consultation in a variety of ways, including direct engagement with the Windrush generation at community outreach events and roadshows, alongside digital and print media.
