West Midlands NRPF Meetings

The WMSMP convenes a regional group which is open to all Local Authorities, statutory and voluntary organisations in the West Midlands.

The objectives of the West Midlands group are to:

  • Create a forum where the impact of NRPF in the West Midlands can be discussed, issues escalated and good practice shared.
  • Link with and inform regional strategies and initiatives particularly relating to NRPF issues.
  • Link into the Home Office Interventions and Sanctions team to look at ways to prevent and deter immigration abuse and increase adherence with the immigration rules.
  • Monitor the impact of migration on No Recourse to Public Funds issues.
  • Identify and source relevant training around NRPF issues for members.
  • Identify and seek to address gaps in resources, service provision and delivery to asylum seekers, unsuccessful asylum seekers, refugees and migrants.
