What is the NRPF Network?

No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF) refers to people who are subject to immigration control and have no entitlement to welfare benefits or public housing. However, social services departments may have a duty to provide services (including accommodation) to people with NRPF who meet thresholds for support under community care or human rights legislation.

Operating under the auspices of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) and the Association of Directors of Children's Services (ADCS) Asylum Taskforce, the NRPF Network supports and represents the concerns of local authorities on issues relating to NRPF. The Network is hosted by Islington Council.

The Network works at practice, policy and strategic levels and aims to:

  • share information and good practice amongst Local Authorities and other agencies working in this area
  • work with government departments to raise the practical and policy issues of NRPF
  • facilitate reimbursement for Local Authorities of the costs of providing support to people with NRPF
  • develop a strategic response to NRPF

A number of regional NRPF Networks operate across the UK. The regional NRPF Networks provide the opportunity for practitioners to meet and share information and good practice around NRPF issues.The Network is committed to working in partnership with other agencies, including government departments and the voluntary and community sector, to find solutions to the issues that arise with NRPF.

For more information please visit the NRPF network website.

The NRPF Network is open to all local authorities and their representative bodies. Other statutory and voluntary sector organisations with an interest in the statutory response to NRPF are invited to participate in and contribute to the Network. To join the Network please click here.
