Session 10: NRPF, homelessness and women and families
This workshop will hear from leading organisations in support for women, children and families subject to immigration control and explore the different routes open to support and help with accommodation and the prevention of homelessness. The workshop will explore statutory support for children and families under Section 17 Children Act 1989 as well as special considerations, such as women who are victims of domestic abuse. The workshop aims to equip practitioners with the basic knowledge needed to support women, children and families as well as signposting to organisations and tools that are useful in working with this group.
