The Windrush Compensation Scheme rules are available on the government website at

Part 10 of the rules sets out the provisions in the event that a claimant wishes to seek a review of a decision under the scheme.

In the first instance an internal review is carried out by a senior reviewer who has not been involved in the original decision. If the claimant does not agree with the outcome of the internal review, they can request that their claim is reviewed by an independent person from outside the Home Office.

These provisions for review do not preclude access to existing routes of legal challenge or review available in respect of decisions made by a public authority.
