Working with Women Experiencing Domestic Abuse who have no recourse to Public Funds (NRPF).

Guidance and operational procedures on Working with Women Experiencing Domestic Abuse who have no recourse to Public Funds.

This paper provides guidance for Glasgow City Council, Social Work staff in assessing whether they have a duty to support victims of domestic abuse when the victim has no recourse to public funds (NRPF) under Community Care and Human Rights legislation.  Social Work has a duty under the Children's Act (Scotland) 1995 to consider the welfare of the child.  At no time does the child have no recourse to public funds.  The fundamental steps that need to be taken by staff are to;

1.     ensure that the person has resided in Glasgow for a considerable time,

2.     check the person's immigration status and

3.     complete a comprehensive assessment, as detailed in paragraph 4in this document.
