Accessing local authority
support for migrant families with ‘no recourse to public funds’
 

The training covers the following areas:

  • Identifying immigration status and entitlements
  • Support for families: section 17 of the Children Act 1989
  • Child in need assessments and human rights assessments
  • Common problems accessing support (and how to overcome them)
