Black Cultural Archives (BCA) has announced plans to hold a public meeting for all those affected by the Windrush Scandal on Saturday 18 January 2020. This will be followed by free legal surgeries every Wednesday and Saturday from January 22 until the end of February (our first phase) to help people access the Windrush Compensation Scheme.

These are the second set of surgeries hosted by BCA. Their purpose is to give first step advice to those from the community who were wrongly detained, denied legal rights, threatened with deportation, and, in at least 83 cases, wrongly deported from the UK by the Home Office.

The appointments will be led by immigration specialist legal firm, McKenzie, Beute, and Pope who have dealt with a number of these cases since the scandal erupted in 2018.

You can book your free ticket for the public meeting on BCA’s Eventbrite page and book free surgery slots on this page, by calling the BCA Reception 2023 757 8500 or simply dropping in.

Legal surgeries for those affected by the Windrush scandal will start on Wednesday 22 January and will run every Wednesday between 17:00 – 20:00 and Saturday morning, 10:00 – 12:00 until Saturday 29 February 2020.
