No Recourse To Public Funds (NRPF) Protocol

Wolverhampton Health and Wellbeing Together asked for a Forum to be established to look at how we as a city work with people who have 'No Recourse to Public Funds'. This was as a result of the recommendations made in the Serious Case Review of Child G. The aim was to bring a range of agencies together to strengthen our approach to safeguarding the welfare of children and families with No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF) in our city.
The NRPF Forum consists of representatives from the voluntary sector, Housing, Education, Wolverhampton Clinical Commissioning Group, The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, West Midlands Police, Safeguarding and Public Health. It aims to ensure that all partner agencies in Wolverhampton adopt a co-ordinated approach to working together to support people with NRPF.
The NRPF Forum highlighted the need to develop an easy to read protocol to support agencies across Wolverhampton to understand what information is needed from people with NRPF to support and signpost them to appropriate services. The Forum has overseen the development of this protocol.
It is important to remember that people with NRPF and their families can live highly precarious lives and can be subject to exploitation.
Where there are immediate child protection concerns, these take priority over NRPF issues.
By developing a protocol, creating online information resources on NRPF and arranging training for partners, the city is now better equipped to support people with No Recourse to Public Fund
