The month-long call for evidence is the first step to establishing the scheme for those who have suffered financial loss because of difficulties proving their immigration status.
As part of this process the Home Office will be engaging with affected communities, enabling people to share their experiences with Home Office staff. People and community groups will also be able to submit written evidence.
The call for evidence will run until 8 June 2018. This will be followed by a full consultation on the detail of the scheme.
