We assist councils to prevent homelessness and alleviate poverty by sharing good practice in the implementation of essential safety-net support for people who are excluded from mainstream benefits. This section contains our guidance to assist social care staff who are working with adults with care needs who have no recourse to public funds and who are destitute or at risk of homelessness.
Our practice guidance sets out the legislation and relevant case law that councils need to be aware of when assessing and meeting the needs of adults with no recourse to public funds and is an essential read for social workers and other officers who are directly involved in the provision of support under the Care Act or mental health aftercare. We also produce factsheets that serve as a go-to source of information on key topics of the moment.
