For discrimination claims brought from 6 April 2018, injury to feelings awards will be based on the following bands (known as the Vento bands):

  • A lower band of £900 to £8,600 (for less serious cases).
  • A middle band of £8,600 to £25,700 (for cases that do not merit an award in the upper band).
  • An upper band of £25,700 to £42,900 (for the most severe cases). In exceptional circumstances, awards can exceed £42,900.
