There has been significant outreach and communication activities to reach those most likely to have been affected by the issues around Windrush.

To reach international audiences, a High Commissioners event was hosted by the former Immigration Minister to further raise awareness, and working with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, a briefing was provided to embassies to inform local conversations. Plans are in development for additional activity overseas.
