The Home Office have published a guidance on the Windrush compensation scheme, in April 2019.
Individuals may be able to claim compensation through the scheme if they have suffered a loss because they could not demonstrate your lawful right to live in the UK.
The scheme is open to many people including:
- Children and grandchildren of Commonwealth citizens in certain circumstances
- The estates of those who are now deceased but who would have otherwise been eligible to claim 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.
