NRPF Toolkit for social workers

NRPF Toolkit for social workers front cover

Project 17 has developed a new NRPF toolkit for social workers in collaboration with University of Plymouth, the BASW Immigration, Asylum and Trafficking Special Interest Group, and the Institute for Community Research and Development at the University of Wolverhampton.

The toolkit uses a human rights approach to explain the no recourse to public funds (NRPF) rule and its implications for child welfare and social work practice.

It's aimed at social work practitioners to enable them to think critically and ethically about how to work with children who are subject to immigration control, by engaging with theory, legislation, research, and practice wisdom.

The toolkit includes sections explaining what the NRPF rule is, eligibility for services, local authority support, and NRPF-specific practice, and includes questions for reflection and links to case law and research evidence throughout.
