The Government has made it clear we intend to put in place a compensation scheme quickly and carefully to redress what has gone wrong.

On 19 July, we launched the Windrush Compensation Consultation. The consultation period will run for 12 weeks ending on 11 October.

I would encourage people to respond to the consultation, to help inform the design of the scheme

Following consultation, the scheme will open as soon as possible.
