Item 5 - No Recourse to Public Funds

 

Summary 

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.

Recommendations 

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.
