Clients 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.
Supporting people with no recourse to public funds
This guidance aims to provide information for local authorities and services to help them identify which clients are NRPF 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 non-EEA clients (migrants and asylum seekers). Services working with EEA clients should refer to the Effective Action series for our publications on Entitlements for EEA Nationals, The Response and Offer for EEA Nationals and Reconnecting Rough Sleepers.
