Former Home Secretary's Abandonment of Windrush Repairs Found Discriminatory in Court

The High Court heard that Suella Braverman, the former home secretary, acted unlawfully by dropping three recommendations aimed at repairing the harm caused to the Windrush generation.
The Windrush scandal, which came to light in 2023, had a discriminatory impact on people who had lived in the UK since childhood, resulting in detention, removal, job loss, homelessness, and denied NHS treatment.

The Home Office had committed to a comprehensive improvement program in response to the scandal.

The Windrush generation, immigrants from the Caribbean who came to the UK between the 1940s and 1970s, faced discriminatory abandoned reforms and broken promises from the government, leading to hardships for individuals like Trevor Donald.

Donald, 68, was stranded in Jamaica for nine years after attempting to secure a UK passport for his mother's funeral in 2010.

He was unable to get one and returned to Jamaica using emergency travel documents.

However, he was denied permission to return to the UK until 2019 when the government acknowledged his right to live there, following a scandal exposing the issue.

A man was denied British citizenship despite meeting all requirements due to a past scandal involving his community.

He lost his council flat and had damaged relationships with his children during this time.

He was granted citizenship in January 2022 but is now bringing a legal claim against the Home Office, alleging unlawful discrimination for not implementing all recommendations to prevent a repeat of the scandal.
