    One of our priorities is to champion those who are marginalised when trying to access health care in MK.

    Citizens Advice MK is working with Traverse, an independent research consultancy, to conduct research with people living in the UK who have no recourse to public funds (NRPF).

    This research will be used by Citizens Advice to inform their campaign to end the no recourse to public funds policy. They are looking for ten people to take part in a series of workshops. To take part the people need to:

    Be currently subject to the No Recourse to Public Funds visa condition OR have had the NRPF condition lifted in the past two years 

    Have been detrimentally affected by the NRPF condition. This criteria is intentionally broad because they’re interested in speaking to people with a range of experiences. 

    Be on either a family or work visa 

    Be able to participate in an online workshop in English. Migrants with English as a second language are we come to apply but Citizens Advice cannot provide interpreters.

    Should someone need a little support with English or the technology needed to take part, they can support up to 5 participants attending with a friend or family member.  Be comfortable talking in a group environment with other people who they do not know. This conversation will involve them sharing their experiences of no recourse to public funds.

    The three workshops will happen online on these dates:

    Workshop 1: Thursday 16th September 1pm - 2.30pm

    Workshop 2: Tuesday 21st September 10am - 11.30am

    Workshop 3: Tuesday 5th October 11am - 12.30pm

    Participants will need to be able to attend all three dates to take part. For more information please contact: NRPF@traverse.ltd Or http://chibwe.mushibwe@mkcab.org.uk 

    Each person will receive a total of £150.00 for taking part in the three workshops. This can be provided via bank transfer or high street shopping voucher. The results of the research will be used by Citizens Advice to develop their strategy to influence the government to address and alleviate areas of harm caused by NRPF, with a view to scrapping the scheme entirely.
