Tackling Homelessness and Destitution amongst Migrants With No Recourse to Public Funds - Lorraine Lois and Dave Smith
A Report on the Extent and Nature of Accommodation provided by NACCOM Member Organisations.
Asylum and Refugee Support: Civil Society Filling the Gaps? - Dr. Lucy Mayblin & Poppy James, October 2017
This report asks the question ‘What is the scale of the refugee third sector response to gaps in the support regime for asylum seekers, refused asylum seekers and refugees?’ and explores the financial cost to the refugee third sector of poverty and destitution among these groups, including the scale of the sector and the number and needs of people that are being supported. It also looks at how third sector groups are funded and makes key recommendations for changes to the sector. NACCOM, British Red Cross, ASSIST Sheffield and Asylum Welcome all featured as case studies in the report.
Models of Accommodation and Support for Destitute Migrants with NRPF - Produced for Housing Justice, NACCOM and Praxis by Ceri Hutton and Sue Lukes, April 2015
A resource for practitioners and groups who want to get involved in accommodating destitute migrants.
There are a range of projects across the UK which have highlighted the presence of destitute migrants and the need to develop responses to their humanitarian needs. These projects have also developed innovative practices that have the potential to inspire others. This resource identifies some of the elements of best practice in relation to these models.
This report explains the nature and urgency of the problems affecting destitute migrants, what solutions might work and how obstacles to helping them can be tackled. It also gives advice on overcoming legal obstacles to giving help to destitute migrants.
This study focuses on the legal needs of destitute refused asylum seekers. It builds on a 2013 report published by Asylum Aid: Rethinking Asylum Legal Representation. It sits within the 2015 movement of the homelessness and advice sectors whose aim is to collaborate and end destitution among migrants, and is addressed to funders, strategists and also to destitution support organisations. It shows that organisations that provide accommodation and destitution support are well placed to increase access to, and thereby the effectiveness of, asylum legal advice.
