Anneliese Dodds is holding a special ‘Windrush’ surgery on Friday 22 June between 1:30pm and 2:30pm at the New Testament Church of God, Between Towns Road, Oxford.
The purpose of the event is to identify people who have been impacted by the Windrush scandal, answer their questions, and ensure they are getting the support they need to regularise their immigration status.
“This surgery is really important to me," Anneliese says, "I have already helped some ‘Windrush’ constituents get a passport and avoid deportation, but there will be other people in Oxford that are affected, and I want to reach out to as many affected constituents as possible.”
There are a range of ways that constituents might be affected, you might be struggling to prove your right to work or access benefits.
Anneliese urges anyone who thinks they might be affected to come along to the surgery on Friday afternoon.
She says, “Please bring with you the details of any interactions you’ve had with the Home Office, and if possible any letters they have sent you. But if you can’t find these documents, don’t worry you can still come and discuss your situation.”
Anneliese will be joined at the surgery by her specialist immigration caseworker.
“I will continue to support all my Windrush constituents as they regularise their immigration status and press for compensation from the Home Office.”
