Hundreds attend Windrush meeting seeking justice


There were hundreds of people who have been affected by the Windrush scandal who attended a special meeting at Birmingham City Council House to find out how they can claim compensation from the government, with teams from the Home Office in the city to help those who were forced to prove they had the right to be in the UK.

Attendees were told there is no cap on the amount of compensation a person can receive and that relatives of those affected can also make a claim.

Community activist, Desmond Jaddoo, a minister at the Assemblies of the First Born church in Lozells, in Birmingham, who helped organise the event, said: “I hope that it will help bring a resolution to what’s been a stressful time for many.”
