Social Worker - No Recourse to Public Funds
Children whose parents have No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF) are at a high risk of homelessness and destitution; as their parents are restricted from accessing mainstream housing, welfare benefits or employment.
If the family is destitute and not able or willing to return to their country of origin; the NRPF Team assesses, screens and interviews parents. Following the screening, if it is deemed essential, a Child in Need plan is put in place. Where identified, subsistence and accommodation through section 17 of the Children’s Act 1989 will be arranged.
The ASTI & Safeguarding Teams work closely with NRPF; and will transfer cases to them following child protection enquiries, when a Child in Need Plan is recommended; or when the child no longer requires a Child Protection Plan but does need a Children in Need Plan.
