How many requests for support from individuals with No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF) status have the council received in the last 6 months under Section 23 and 24 of the Care Act for a young person formerly looked after by the local authority? 4. How many requests for support under Section 17 of the Children Act 1989 from families where the parent(s) has No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF) status have the council received in the last 6 months where the parent(s) immigration status excludes them from social services support under Schedule 3 of the Nationality Asylum and Immigration Act 2002? 5. How many requests for support under Section 18 or Section 23 and 24 of the Care Act 2014 from individuals with No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF) status have the council received in the last 6 months where the individual is excluded under Schedule 3 of the Nationality Asylum and Immigration Act 2002? 6. How many Child in Need assessments were carried out by the council on families where the parent(s) has NRPF status in the last 6 months (full assessments not just initial screening)? 7. How many Human Rights assessments were conducted by the council where an individual, or parent(s) if it is a family case, has NRPF status and is excluded under Schedule 3 of the Nationality Asylum and Immigration Act 2002 in the 6 months? 8. When the council receives a referral for support for a family with NRPF status under Section 17 of the Children Act 1989, what is the statutory process to respond to these referrals, does the local authority Children's Services use an initial screening to decide whether a full Child in Need assessment is required? 9. Does the council use social workers or caseworkers (or both) to conduct the assessments used to decide whether to provide support to individuals or families with NRPF status? 10. How many requests for support were granted by the council resulting in the individual or family with NRPF receiving support from the council in the last 6 months: a. under Section 17 of the Children Act 1989? b. under Section 18 of the Care Act 2014? c. under Sections 23 and 24 of the Care Act 2014? 11. How many of the cases where individuals or families with NRPF status received support from the council in the last six months were individuals who were also excluded under Schedule 3 of the Nationality, Asylum and Immigration Act 2002? 12. For the requests for support under Section 17 of the Children Act 1989 for families where the parent(s) has NRPF status that were refused, how many of the cases were refused for each of the following reasons: a. The immigration status of the family (parent(s)) precludes the local authority from providing support under Section 17 of the Children Act 1989. b. That the family did not live in the borough and was therefore the responsibility of a different local authority. c. That the family were deemed not to be destitute or the child(ren) were deemed not 'in need' and hence they did not require support. d. The parents did not have leave to remain in the UK and could freely return to their country of origin (there was no legal or practical barrier to their return). e. Other reason 13. Do you have a dedicated staff member or staff team that deals specifically with individuals or families with 'No Recourse to Public Funds' status within your local authority?
