Making lives with ‘no recourse to public funds’


Shadows is a research project that advances understandings of the ways destitute migrant families and unaccompanied young people with insecure migration status make and sustain their lives in the absence of mainstream welfare support in England. Shadows explores these issues through longitudinal ethnographic fieldwork, decolonial policy analysis, and creative co-production with children, young people, and parents with ‘no recourse to public funds’ (NRPF).
