Windrush: never again

Implement and accept all recommendations from The Windrush Lessons Learned review, and do more to protect survivors so this never happens again

Why is this important?

Two years after the Windrush Scandal, the independent report commissioned into the appalling failings that took place has finally been published. But with so much going on, we can’t let the lessons go unnoticed.

The Home Office can no longer ignore the true scale of the scandal and its impact on people - from being made homeless or unemployed to being denied access to the NHS or unfairly deported. The Home Office must urgently stop any racial discrimination and to learn from the lessons published, so this never happens again.

This includes full implementation of all recommendations - with an action plan to do this quickly, appointing an independent group to review progress, and doing more to support survivors now.

Thanks for your support again in supporting the victims of the Windrush Scandal in forcing the government to make a commitment to implement the Lessons Learned Review. However one of the biggest and outstanding issues is the failure of the Windrush Compensation Scheme. It was only recent discovered at Home Office Select that the 5 people who died in the UK as result of the scandal families estates have not paid. Plus one person only got £240.

Please support this petition so can get another 100k signatures so we can present this to Number 10. The compensation scheme needs to be fair and managed independently of the Home Office.
