Revd Dr David Cornick, General Secretary of Churches Together in England has asked for the following information to be circulated about the resources available from the Home Office concerning those of the ‘Windrush Generation’ who may be in difficulties with their British citizenship status.

The Home Office has set up a dedicated web page to help Commonwealth citizens confirm their status in the UK, which can be found here:

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-team-to-help-commonwealth-citizens-confirm-their-status-in-the-uk

There is also a Freephone number: 0800 678 1925.  This line is open Mon-Sat 9am–5pm, Sun 10am–4pm.

This letter from the Home Office Minister to Caribbean High Commissioners laying out action the government is taking is also a useful link.
