The Migrant Destitution Toolkit offers practical support to improve pathways out of destitution for destitute migrants.
Strategic Alliance on Migrant Destitution
People who become homeless after arriving in England might find support from a wide range of services, including homelessness, faith and community based services, health, humanitarian aid and legal advice. Research shows that cross-sector working with destitute migrants can provide very beneficial outcomes, however there needs to be much more partnership between these different sectors.
By working together, we aim to increase the number of bedspaces available to people with no recourse to public funds, as well as developing routes out of destitution, including immigration advice and representation.
Hosted by Homeless Link, the Alliance is made up of national bodies including the British Red Cross, Housing Justice, Migrant Rights Network, NACCOM, Refugee Action, Praxis Community Projects and Refugee Council.
Our key aims are to:
- Increase supply of accommodation for people with no recourse to public funds.
- Support front-line agencies and local partnerships.
- Develop integrated pathways out of destitution.
- Gather, share and use evidence of what works to inform service providers, funders, commissioners and policy makers.
