Following legal action taken by Matthew Gold & Co and Deighton Pierce Glynn, the government has temporarily extended eligibility for free school meals support to some families with NRPF. We've created a number of resources for families around this change.

Briefing on NRPF individuals who are experiencing, or are at risk of, homelessness & destitution during COVID-19 

As part of our work providing the joint secretariat to the APPG on No Recourse to Public Funds, we produced this briefing on issues individuals with NRPF are facing during the Covid-19 pandemic.
