The Windrush Justice Clinic assists victims of the Windrush scandal to obtain compensation for the losses and distress they have suffered because of the hostile environment.

Winner of the 2022 LawWorks and Attorney General’s Student Pro Bono Awards for Best New Pro Bono Activity.

The Windrush Justice Clinic is run by a collaboration of partners, including the legal advice clinics at the University of Westminster and London South Bank University; North Kensington Law Centre, Southwark Law Centre, the Claudia Jones Organisation, the Windrush Compensation Project and the Jigsaw House Society.

The Windrush Compensation Scheme was established so that people could get some recompense for their suffering. Claims could include: illegal imprisonment and deportation, loss of employment, immigration and legal fees for unsuccessful applications, loss of access to higher education, or international student fees, loss of homes, frozen bank accounts, lack of access to welfare benefits and health care.

The service provided includes advice, assistance, casework and representation. Where specialist immigration advice or legal representation is needed we can refer to one of the specialists within our network as appropriate. We will advise you on your entitlement to compensation taking a specialist approach that seeks to recompense you justly

The clinics are there as the frontline help to offer initial assistance, and all clients will be assessed to decide what level of help they need. All students working in the clinics are closely supervised by qualified solicitors, barristers, or accredited caseworkers.
If you think you may have a claim or have made a claim and want assistance with a review, please contact the clinic nearest to your home and they will be happy to assist you.
