A workshop exploring some of the issues around the No Recourse to Public Funding policy.

 

 

This PASAR workshop will explore some of the issues around the No Recourse to Public Funding (NRPF) policy. In facilitating knowledge exchange with affected migrant families, the session intends to create a meaningful dialogue with both policymakers and practitioners.

As well as discussing the legal, social and political issues, we will present the findings of our current research project, while the families will perform forum theatre scenes depicting their daily experiences of living with NRPF.

To book your place, please email Sian Elliott by Tuesday 14 February, advising her of any dietary or accessibility requirements.
