Event description
A course for those regularly supporting families with NRPF, covering how to challenge negative S.17 decisions.

About this event

This is a more advanced course for those who have attended Project 17's supporting families with no recourse to public fund training, or for those who regularly make Section 17 referrals. The course focuses on getting the best outcomes for families requesting support from local authorities. It helps workers prepare clients for assessments, anticipate refusals, and challenge negative decisions.

The course covers:

  • Overview of the legal framework
  • Common reasons for refusing support under s.17
  • Preparing effective referrals to minimise refusals
  • Responding to refusals and failures to assess
  • Accessing legal advice and representation

Please note, the training does not look at support for those without children.

This is a full day course.
