The number of clients with No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF) is growing rapidly and placing increasing service and financial pressure on local authorities. This is a particularly acute issue in London and has been caused by a range of factors including case law, government policy and broader socio-economic conditions.
This report explores the main challenges of NRPF cases and their impact on London and proposes a number of future actions to alleviate the financial pressure on London local government.
The Executive is asked to:
a) Note and comment on any of the issues raised in this report; and
b) Approve the future actions outlined in paragraph 6.2.
