You may have seen reports of the scandal of the Windrush Generation.
The Windrush Generation refers to people who came to the UK from the Commonwealth any time before the 1973 and who have been British citizens for decades have found themselves without documentation and without the ability to work or claim benefits. Anyone you came to the UK before 1988 can be caught up in this. This is a scandal and one that needs to be rectified.
I have arranged a meeting for anyone who is affected, or anyone who knows someone who is affected to come and talk about their situation. The meeting will take place at The Windrush Millennium Centre on Wednesday 2nd May at 5pm.
As MP for Manchester Central, I have been dealing with similar cases and trying to help people who have been caught in this situation and have written to and met with Government Ministers as well as spoken in Parliament on the issue.
If you know anyone who has been affected or anyone who came to the UK before 1988 and who is worried about their status, please share this invitation with them.
If you can’t make the meeting but need advice then please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org 0161 232 0872 or by writing to Lucy Powell MP House of Commons London SW1A 0AA.
