People with no recourse to public funds (NRPF) are at high risk of homelessness and destitution because they cannot access mainstream housing, welfare benefits and employment. Please note that this guidance has updates pending.
Supporting people with no recourse to public funds
This guidance aims to provide information to help homelessness services identify which people they support have no recourse and what their options might be, in order to develop a support offer. It outlines the steps services can take to present different options, alleviate destitution or access funds for clients, and includes details of specialist organisations working with NRPF clients.
This guidance primarily focuses on migrants and asylum seekers who are non-EEA nationals. Services working with EEA clients should refer to: www.homeless.org.uk/our-work/resources/working-with-eea-nationals
