The Windrush Compensation Scheme rules are available on the government website at www.gov.uk/windrush-compensation.

Paragraph 3.1 of the rules sets out the circumstances under which an apology will be made under the Windrush compensation scheme. The Home Office will first consider whether a claimant is eligible to claim for, and entitled to receive, an award. All claimants who receive an award of compensation will receive an apology from the Home Office.
