Support Provided by Islington Council
The No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF) Team provides a service to refused asylum seekers and other people from abroad, who are subject to immigration control and have no recourse to public funds (welfare benefits, public housing and asylum support). It provides accommodation and financial support when they have an assessed community care need.
