Local Authority Responses to people with NRPF during the pandemic

This project was borne out of a concern that people with No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF) were being left out of the measures to protect people from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the instructions from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to ‘bring everyone in’ (MHCLG, 2020), the authors found from their own practice, and from the experience of others, examples of situations where both families and single adults were being disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. 

This briefing highlights some initial findings from a research project which aims to understand the impact of the pandemic on people with NRPF; the response of local authorities; and to identify areas of good practice which can be built on to safeguard the welfare of people with NRPF.
