DON’T LET THE HOME OFFICE GET AWAY WITH IT.

The Home Office Scandal
In 2012 the Hostile Environment led to the mass violation of rights of the WIndrush generation and their descendants. Many were wrongfully detained, deported and lost access to essential services. The compensation, created and controlled by the Home Office, has fallen short of delivering justice and the impacts are still experienced to this day.
More than 16,000 British citizens misclassified as illegal immigrants as a result of the Hostile Environment policy
Many lost their jobs and access to pensions, essential services, housing and more
Only 6% of eligible applicants have received compensation
Less than ⅓ of allocated funds have been paid out after nearly 5 years
Victims continue to live under threats of detention and deportation
The scandal is not over.
We are storytellers and Windrush advocates. Using the power of film and television we will amplify the voices of the Windrush generation to:
Raise awareness, educate Britain and ignite a collective call for action
Ensure full and swift compensation to Windrush victims
Bring an end to the Hostile Environment policy
Together we must ensure windrush victims are SEEN, HEARD and HEALED
We need Justice. NOW.”
Actor & Campaigner
Our purpose is to keep the issue of Windrush front and centre in people’s minds so that justice might finally be delivered. Britain’s Windrush generation must be seen, heard and healed. They deserve nothing less.”
