Item 5 - No Recourse to Public Funds



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.
