The government has created guidance and a dedicated taskforce to help resolve ‘Windrush’ cases.

Guidance for Commonwealth citizens, known as the ‘Windrush’ generation, who are long-term residents of the UK and do not have documents to demonstrate their status, has been made available on the website. The guidance contains information about how to check your status to remain in the UK, the evidence needed to support your application to stay in the UK and the next steps to take if you are affected.

The government has also created a dedicated taskforce that will work with individuals that believe they have been affected to resolve cases as quickly as possible. You can contact the taskforce by:
