Hybrid evidence session of the APPG on NRPF on 15 June 2022 (4.00-5.30 pm), to explore new report on Children in Poverty from the Work and Pensions Committee

About this event

This event hosted by the APPG on No Recourse to Public Funds* will explore the report from the Work and Pensions Committee (WPC), following their inquiry into Children in Poverty: No Recourse to Public Funds.

Many organisations submitted evidence to the inquiry, detailing how thousands of children are facing extreme poverty in the United Kingdom because strict immigration rules prevent their families from accessing the welfare safety net. The coronavirus pandemic has exposed the precariousness of daily life for thousands of families without access to public funds.

This session will bring together the chair of the WPC, policy experts and people with lived experiences of similar policies. The session will examine the WPC report and the recommendations made by the Committee and will look at the next steps to eradicate extreme poverty in the lives of children as a result of the No Recourse to Public Funds condition.

This event will be chaired by Kate Osamor MP.
